How can we
do something
about it?

Change is possible by asking new questions, educating ourselves, and proposing new solutions to broken systems. That's why Engineers Without Borders raised questions on issues like climate change, innovation, and Canadian aid from young Canadians who want to be initiators of real change.

We are asking future leaders and groundbreakers across the country to think about new ways to improve Canada's effectiveness to eradicate global poverty and take actions to strengthen our contribution to the SDGs.

We want to change the status quo on the most important global topics impacting us today, and into the future, such as gender equality, climate change adaptation, innovation for development, public/private partnerships, and finance for development.

We have the power to change the way Canada aids the world and it starts here!

Change so far:

The private sector creates 9 out of 10 new jobs in developing countries and is a key driver of long term sustainable and inclusive change in emerging economies. Yet despite the potential of impact investing, Canadian charities are stifled in their ability to effectively support of social enterprises.

The nonprofit sector worked closely with Senator Ratna Omidvar and a coalition of like-minded organizations on Bill S-216 and subsequent implementation of the BIA, but the text initially made it clear that it was creating greater restrictions and reporting duties for Charities when working with non-qualified donees.

This June, Bill C19 was passed into law and included measures that changed “direction and control” requirements that regulate charities who work with non-charities!
