We are pleased to announce that Initiatives of Change (IofC) International, supported by the Fetzer Institute, is launching an International Trustbuilding Program that aims to address divisive issues at the international and national levels.

On August 29, 2019, IofC Canada, one of three pilot countries, entered into a one-year agreement with IofC International to develop a Trustbuilding Program to address the divisiveness of language, culture, immigration, religion and treatment of aboriginal people in Quebec. With this agreement, IofC Canada will receive funding from IofC International to create the Trustbuilding Program in Quebec that will focus on personal transformation, and build a community within a multi-sector engagement approach.

Additional Funding for IofC Canada

The additional funding will allow IofC Canada to structure and organize its resources in a way that will ensure the success of the Quebec Trustbuilding Project by:

• hiring a Project Manager to oversee, develop and manage the Quebec Trustbuilding Program and to expand in other areas across Canada; and

• allocating financial resources to support the work in other areas, such as communications and fundraising, as required.
