The Institute for Change Leaders is proud to offer the first accredited Marshall Ganz-based community organizing course in Canada. With your support, we've made an incredible impact since launching in March 2015.

We've taught new skills to changemakers from all walks of life. Our training has helped activists win millions for affordable housing in Ottawa, empowered a Toronto Residents' Association fight for a safe and healthy living space, and supercharged a province-wide movement of early childhood educators.

We rely on your support. Please donate today so that we can keep making an impact.
