LEAP supports leaders driving meaningful social change.
Our causes are innovating in ways that work. From improving access to information in first nations communities to 3D printing prosthetics, the impacts of the social ventures we work with are felt across the country.
The work of our causes aligns with Sustainable Development Goals.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
