CICan launches ImpAct to help Canada meet Sustainable Development Goals

February 28, 2020

Colleges and Institutes Canada has launched a new initiative to help Canada make progress toward the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. ImpAct, supported by the McConnell Foundation and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, will launch three collaborative pan-Canadian projects that will aim to reduce barriers to access for vulnerable populations, support social entrepreneurship, and improve campus sustainability. “As community hubs, where education, innovation, and entrepreneurship converge, colleges and institutes are ideally placed to help Canada reach these goals," said CICan President Denise Amyot. "ImpAct will give us an opportunity to share best practices, but also develop projects that will have tangible results all across the country.”  CICan  (National)
