Our Work

We believe that a strong and healthy community is one in which Canadians feel supported, empowered, valued, and heard.

Now in its 17th year, Make A Change Canada was established in 2005 as a national nonprofit and charitable organization that provides employment and skills training to Canadians who face challenges to finding or maintaining employment in today’s labour market.

Our clients include people facing all types of challenges, from those who are living with a disability or chronic health issue, to those living in remote areas. Some are youth or stay-at-home parents, while others are older workers, Indigenous Peoples, new Canadians, and LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) people. Whatever the circumstance, we are here to help.

Barriers to employment can affect all classes, creeds, and ethnicities. Our mission is to help Canadians from coast-to-coast overcome these barriers and realize their full potential.

Our programs are available online 24 hours a day across Canada and can be accessed from the comfort and convenience of your own home—wherever you are! As long as you have internet access, you have access to positive career change.

"If we can awaken the passion within, we can achieve almost anything."
- from the Make A Change Canada vision statement.
