Who We Are

Who we are hero image
Our Cause is Canada's Charities and Nonprofits

We work to bolster the Canadian charitable and nonprofit sector's role in building, enriching and defining our nation.

Land Acknowledgement

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.
