Inspiring leaders, inspiring us!

For five years since we launched ICL, we have built foundations – not of bricks and mortar, but of relationships and trust.

In the past year, while maintaining an enduring relationship with and unwavering support from X University, we have forged new partnerships with organizations across Canada and beyond. That has helped us weather the impact of Covid on our operations and those of the people we reach and train. And that has been more important than ever, because in these dark days of pandemic, climate crisis, racism and international strife, empowering change and inspiring leaders has helped create rays of light.

In this report, we highlight some of the amazing achievements of the change leaders we have trained, fighting against the odds to achieve social justice.

In the half-decase since we launched ICL, the needs have never been greater, and we have never been more inspired!
