We can’t wait for Paris. Our planet and society have reached a critical time for action—and we are responding by engaging young Canadians who are passionate about improving their communities by giving them the knowledge, the inspiration, and the support to bring their sustainability initiatives from ideation to realization.

BUILDING A MOVEMENT
We now have a movement of over 1,200 young leaders who are championing sustainability initiatives and making a lasting impact in the business and nonprofit worlds. To date, IMPACT! has funded over 124 unique initiatives providing more than $678,000 in seed funding since 2009.
We are seeking applicants who are students or recent grads from post-secondary institutions, and are between the ages of 19 and 30.
