About Us

Everyone, everywhere, has a part to play and a story to tell.

Initiatives of Change (IofC) Canada is a voluntary, donation- and grant-funded nonprofit association. We are registered in Canada, and we serve as the central hub for a Canadian network of teams and individuals who are leading community-based initiatives.



We believe an honest look at one’s own motives and behavior is the start of global change. IofC singles out four values as our foundation for self-reflection: honesty, unselfishness, purity of heart, and love.

Who We Are

Part of a global movement of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with their own.

What We Do

Inspire, equip and connect people to address local and world needs, starting with themselves, taking focused action alongside others who share our vision and values.

Focus Areas

Trust and community building, Inter-cultural / inter-faith dialogues, and helping young people with leadership potential to find and follow their vocation.

Our Global Community
