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.
