About Us

The Centre for Civic Governance works to support community leadership meeting today’s social and environmental challenges: climate change, Canada’s increasing equity gap, and shifting social trends.

At the Centre for Civic Governance, our goal is to strengthen Canadian communities through sharing best practices, providing tools for locally elected leaders, and progressive policy analysis. We strive to provide knowledge and information to make real and positive social change.

The Centre for Civic Governance is an initiative of the Columbia Institute, a charitable organization established to activate and motivate working people to build strong, progressive communities throughout Canada.
