At Tides Canada, we leverage philanthropy in smart ways to address tough environmental and social challenges.

With knowledgeable staff and deep on-the-ground networks, we pool ideas and resources to help address issues that no individual or group can tackle alone. This is furthered by our initiatives that are working to address a range of environmental and social challenges

We work with donors to invest in local solutions to environmental and well-being challenges. We help bring together diverse groups from across Canada—indigenous leaders, nonprofits, academics, community leaders, regional and national governments, philanthropists, and disparate voices—who are all part of the conversation, and part of our solutions.
