The Better Canada Impact Fund

We believe that a better Canada means a better world, and we know that better business practice means a better Canada. It’s why we’re empowering our faculty to use their unique expertise and experience to uncover the insights and understandings that will inform the smart and strategic investment required to build better business practices.

The Better Canada Impact Fund injects resources into the school’s efforts to redefine what business research can accomplish by leveraging business and market understandings to develop a greener, healthier, happier, and wealthier country. Donations will be used to support the research by attracting and maintaining talent, acquiring lab space and equipment, and supporting the use of innovative research methods.
