Background of the organization
Founded in 1986, Prosper Canada expands economic opportunity for people living in, or at high risk of, poverty through program and policy innovation. The organization aims to ensure that all financially vulnerable individuals have access to the financial policies, programs, products and advice they need to build their financial wellbeing.
Prosper Canada also partners with governments, businesses and community organizations to develop and promote financial empowerment policies.
Funding will support Prosper Canada’s national and local backbone services for financial empowerment. The project will strengthen capacity by facilitating a national Community of Practice that enables peer learning, improves services, tests innovations and tailors service models for diverse populations, including equity-deserving communities.
