The Better Canada Impact Fund
We believe that a better Canada means a better world, and we know that better business practices also help us create a better Canada. It’s why we’re empowering our researchers to use their unique expertise. They are acquiring knowledge and developing new insights to inform the smart and strategic investments required to build better business practices.
The Better Canada Impact Fund injects resources into the school’s efforts to redefine what management researchers can continue to 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 innovative research methods.
Find out more about how investing in research is leading to new insights and business practices for better business and a Better Canada:
The global climate challenge is real. Business needs to lead the way to a more sustainable future for everyone. To build a solid foundation for our future, we need to completely rethink and reorient the way our economy does business.
We need to rethink our approach to healthcare from a system perspective, so that we have a better guarantee that the resources Canada puts into healthcare are doing as much as they can do for as many people as possible.
Happy people are more productive, have better health outcomes, and are more likely to contribute to their communities. We need our workplaces and economy to enhance happiness, not impede it.
We need money to get activated. We need it to work harder and generate more businesses, more leaders, and more innovations. We need it to work for Canada.
