Flooding harms us all. We are engaging residents to collaborate across the region to install inexpensive natural solutions to flooding. We are creating region-wide support to get new government policies that reduce flooding and that invest public dollars in sensible solutions. And we are raising money for residents wanting to create solutions in their communities.
We are helping community advocates develop the skills they need to succeed. With our experience in strategy development, communications and government relations, we offer assistance to advocates in various aspects such as:
- Developing goals, strategies, objectives, and tactics.
- Communications: framing, audience definition, message development, outlet selection, media training, and op-ed writing.
- Approaching government: lobbying, message development, approach, and meeting preparation.
We understand the difficulties of entering the workplace after finishing post-secondary schooling or when coming to Canada as an immigrant. To help open doors within the non-profit sector, we regularly offer various internships and volunteer opportunities for those interested in community involvement, and Indigenous and environmental advocacy.
Ontario Indigenous Youth Partnership Program
A program run in partnership with Tides Canada, we offered a unique platform for Indigenous youth to explore and execute their own ideas. We provided small grants up to $5,000 and an opportunity for youth to receive or take on mentor-ship roles, participate in skills training, and expand their networks by connecting with other youth, partners, and funders.
