A nationally registered charity founded by a group of local changemakers in 1989, The Laurier Institution collaborates with partners to ignite collaboration, deepen shared learning, and inspire action around equity, diversity and inclusion. Our research and educational initiatives are supported by our generous donors and sponsors, members, and project-based funding. We welcome inquiries about potential collaborations and other opportunities aligned with our mission and values.
The Laurier Institution operates from the area known as Vancouver, BC on the unceded, ancestral, and traditional lands of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
As a non-profit, non-partisan organization we aim to shift from solutions that meet the needs of the few to those that meet the needs of the many. We draw from our differences and actively involve everyone’s ideas, knowledge, lived experiences, and perspectives to maximize safe and thriving communities.
