DESCRIPTION

About us - We are a nonprofit organization that is independent of any government funding. We use the power of advocacy to leverage better programs, policies and funding by the Government of Canada on the international stage to end extreme poverty. Our power lies in our people – our volunteers are passionate, committed, everyday people who want to make a difference by harnessing their power as constituents. With expert knowledge, Results creates strategic campaigns that enable volunteers to learn about issues of extreme poverty, and devise tactics to make speaking out to influential decision makers easier to do.

Our mission - We believe that no one should suffer or die from preventable diseases or lack opportunities, and that Canada must be part of the solution. By targeting the right people in power at the right time, we generate conversation about how Canada can do its share to lift people out of poverty. Our focus areas are global health, education and economic inclusion.

How you can help - We will connect you to other volunteers and to our staff so that you can multiply your impact using the transformational power of advocacy. As part of a group, volunteers take impactful actions by writing to the media, voicing their opinion on social media, and engaging with parliamentarians at the federal level. The aim is to guide Canada’s government decision makers towards decisions that give people living in extreme poverty the health, education, and economic opportunity they need to thrive. Volunteers also raise public awareness and help move your community into action beyond our borders. We are always looking for more people to speak up and join our volunteer network - come join a virtual info session to find out more!

How this benefits you too – You collaborate closely with like-minded individuals and experience what it means to be politically engaged. We provide best-in-class advocacy support to train and coach volunteers so that they can take on the kind of work that a lobbyist or public relations pro might - but with the authenticity, passion and credibility of everyday people driven by a mission, not by a profit. You also have the opportunity to participate in our events and conferences that connect you with experts in the International Development Sector. Finally, the civic engagement knowledge you will acquire can be applied to other public policy issues you care about outside your Results group.
