Ashoka’s Canadian branch was established in 2002 and aims to build a radically new Canada where solutions outrun problems—a country where everyone is a changemaker. Together, we recognize, support, and connect a national network of leading changemakers, amplifying solutions and embedding empathy and changemaking into Canadian society.
Our longest-running program is the Fellowship process, which sets catalytic social entrepreneurs on the path to join our community of 52 Canadian Fellows. In 2012, we introduced AshokaU, which fosters changemaking at university and college campuses. More recently, we have expanded into K-12 school systems with our Changemaker Schools initiative. Our two Changemaker Campuses and Changemaker Schools are at the forefront of this shift into education. At our side in these programs is our Ashoka Support Network, composed of inspirational Canadian business entrepreneurs.
