The Council of Canadians is a grassroots organization built on democratic principles. These principles provide an open membership and give all members a voice and vote in our organization. We are accountable to the groups we work with and to the frontline activists and communities we support.
We are independent and non-partisan. We operate without a penny of corporate or government money. Our work is sustained by the generous donations of our supporters and members. This financial independence allows our advocacy work to be direct and uncompromising.
See our 2020-2022 Strategic Plan, which reflects feedback from staff, the Board, Chapter activists and donors. It sets our direction for the next three years and provides the foundation and rationale for annual operational plans and budgets.
