How we strengthen communities

We aim to create strong relationships with the groups and leaders we work with by providing grants, learning opportunities, and practical tools. These relationships ground us in the realities of both communities and the non-profit sector, help us understand the complexities of people’s lived experiences of poverty, and the challenges of advancing economic and social rights in Canada.
