Building a Movement

Together, we are building a movement and nurturing the community of Transition Leaders in Canada. ASI’s work is possible because of these champions – our funders, partners, and network who bring Transition Leadership to life.


We are grateful to our community of funders for their vision and support.

The huge scale of environmental and social challenges facing Canada means that young professionals will need to acquire new knowledge and new  skills if the country is to transition effectively to a low carbon economy. Working with diverse partners across business, government, civil society and post secondary education, the Academy (for Sustainable Innovation) aims to promote and develop pathways that will answer those needs.
