Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) - National


On GivingTuesday, we hope you'll consider giving back—whether it’s making a donation to the CCPA or to the charity of your choice, volunteering time, helping a neighbour, or just spreading the word.  

Founded in 1980, the CCPA is one of Canada’s leading progressive voices in public policy debates. We are committed to a socially, economically, and environmentally just Canada. We deliver original, independent, peer-reviewed research and analysis that equips progressives with the arguments they need to press for social change.

We have a National Office in Ottawa, and provincial offices in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Nova Scotia.

At the Centre, we don't just analyze problems. We work on pragmatic, solutions-focused research that shows Canadians' highest ideals are not only possible, they're essential to our future.

- We work with top-notch researchers to shed light on the key issues facing Canada.

- The CCPA is a leading and respected voice on the gap between the rich and the rest of us in Canada.

- Our groundbreaking work on climate justice has shown how Canada can create green jobs and transition to a sustainable economy.

- Our provincial offices lead the way on emerging provincial and municipal issues and create space for a progressive exchange of ideas and solutions.

- Our national flagship program, the Alternative Federal Budget continues to demonstrate what a government can achieve if it were truly committed to an agenda that reflects the values of the large majority of Canadians.

The CCPA's success is absolutely due to the generous contributions of our supporters, and to you we extend our heartfelt thanks.

If you care about social, economic and environmental justice and want to play a critical role in holding our new government to its campaign promises and inspiring progressive change, please consider using your #GivingMoment to support the CCPA!
