Background of the organization 

Shift Action protects pensions and the climate by bringing together pension funds and their beneficiaries to combat the climate crisis.

They educate and empower beneficiaries on how to engage constructively with their pension funds to address the climate crisis. 



Project description 

Funding will contribute to empower beneficiaries of Canada’s largest pension funds on climate and Indigenous Rights. Shift Action will target two new pension funds: BC’s largest pension fund (BC Investment Management Corporation) and the Canada Pension Plan.
