Who We Are
We work to bolster the Canadian charitable and nonprofit sector's role in building, enriching and defining our nation.
Imagine Canada’s staff, operations, work, and network depend on traditional Indigenous territories to provide us physical space, sustenance, safety, and community to work, live, and play.
Our physical head office is located on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinabeg, the Haudenosaunee, the Chippewa, and the Wendat (Wyandot). We acknowledge that these lands are covered by Treaty 13 and the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant. We acknowledge that these lands are still home to many diverse First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people.
Mission & Values
We believe that charities and nonprofits play an essential role in Canadian society by:
- Engaging Canadians
- Building knowledge
- Strengthening public policy
- Helping those in need
- Enhancing quality of life
- Contributing to economic prosperity
We strive to realize our vision and mission by working according to the following values:
The future is upon us. As charities and nonprofits seek to fulfill their missions in an ever-changing world, Imagine Canada is continuing its process of understanding the operating system for organizations, not just today, but what it may look like in years to come.
Imagine Canada envisions a charitable and nonprofit sector that supports and cultivates diverse, inclusive, just and equitable communities. We are working towards a sector that is truly representative of the communities we work with, that provides radically inclusive workplaces to employees and volunteers of all backgrounds, and that advances systems change.
