At Engineers Without Borders Canada, we strive to unlock human potential.
We unlock human potential in Sub-Saharan Africa by investing in forward-thinking social enterprises. We support local innovators to accelerate their impact and apply their innovations on a global scale, to the benefit of millions.
We unlock human potential in Canada by fostering a community of leaders—supporting a network of established thought leaders while developing the next generation of pioneers.
We unlock human potential globally—collaborating with innovators across boundaries, consolidating our similarities, and learning from our differences. This enables people to contribute individually and as a collective, and to challenge the national and global policies, systems and institutions that contribute to the flawed status quo.
Our fellow human beings continue to live in poverty with diminished choices: struggling to access food, water, sanitation and basic health services.
In a world where there are enough resources for everyone to thrive, this is simply unacceptable. It is an affront to our beliefs. It is an affront to what is right.
Our vision is a world where everyone’s basic needs are met and where everyone can live to their full potential. Our mission is to catalyze changes that address the root causes of poverty and inequity by investing in people and ideas that will contribute to building an equitable and sustainable world.
