Alliance 2030 is a national network of organizations, institutions, and individuals committed to achieving the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the year 2030. We believe these goals can be accomplished both in Canada and abroad by working creatively and collaboratively at both the local and global level.

We’re building a searchable database of all the work that’s being done across Canada in alignment with the SDGs, amplified by high-quality storytelling through our blog and podcast series. This digital space allows member organizations to easily connect with like-minded Canadians, so they can share learnings, find the support they need and stay up-to-date on the current state of the SDGs. We’re also taking this work into our communities, creating spaces for our members to come together and forging relationships across sectors to connect our partners with the support they need to succeed.

The efforts to achieve the SDGs in Canada isn’t led by any one organization, and we know that working in silos can lead to missed opportunities. In that spirit, we are plugging into an active and thriving network of impactful work already being done across the country. By serving as a convener and facilitator, our mission is to strengthen that work through the creation of physical and digital spaces for the public sector, the private sector, and civil society to align on their efforts.

From our largest cities to our smallest communities, we are creating a greater future for Canada’s next 150 years. We believe in the power of together, in uniting causes across borders and across communities, in building an allegiance to a shared purpose — and we’re here to help make that happen.

What can you do?

People from various fields talk about the SDGs and their relevance in achieving a sustainable future. The Alliance 2030 aims to facilitate conversations around the SDGs by providing a platform for collaboration and engagement between individuals, communities, businesses, organizations, and our government. We provide resources, tools, and opportunities for people to get involved in various SDG-related initiatives and events. By fostering these conversations, the Alliance 2030 helps to increase awareness, generate innovative solutions and partnerships to achieve the SDGs. On our website, we welcome you as a member to post articles, events, projects and more surrounding the SDG’s and start conversations! Learn from many others like you on ways we can move these conversations into our own practices. Alliance2030 is built on our network of members that share these resources, to strengthen our work towards the SDG’s. 

Our history

During Canada’s sesquicentennial, Community Foundations of Canada initiated a program called Alliance 150 to build a network of organizations working on issues around youth engagement, diversity & inclusion, care for the environment and reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous Canadians. At the conclusion of 2017, what remained was a vibrant network of organizations and individuals who were passionate about continuing make Canada a better place for everyone.

Today, Alliance 150 lives on as Alliance 2030, and as the network grows and increases its potential for cooperation and collaboration, so too does its capacity to help Canada work toward the SDGs.
