Generation Squeeze is a charitable Think and Change Tank promoting wellbeing for all generations. We're championing generational fairness to preserve what Canadians hold sacred—a healthy childhood, home and planet—so we all leave a proud legacy.
Generational fairness means asking Canadians to:
ABIDE BY THE GOLDEN RULE
Treat other generations as you would want to be treated
BE GOOD STEWARDS
Preserve what’s sacred today for younger and future generations
PLAN FOR ALL AGES
Invest in wellbeing from the early years onwards
Love motivates families to care for all generations. We want to bring that motivation into the world of politics.
THINK Generational unfairness is a root cause of unaffordable housing, the high cost of raising a family, mounting climate risks, growing government debt, and rising medical costs that crowd out investments in wellbeing. The Gen Squeeze Knowledge Mobilization Lab at UBC researches these issues and creates policy solutions. Our budget analyses and voters guides evaluate how government leaders are tackling generational unfairness.
CHANGE The Gen Squeeze Charity turns policy solutions into action. We share evidence to shape public dialogue. We build coalitions to push for change. And we advise governments about the bold steps needed to make Canada work for all generations. That’s how we help to rejuvenate democracy.
JOIN No single person can fix Canada’s generational system. We need to work together to disrupt a status quo that’s harming younger and future generations and undermining the legacy older generations are leaving for the kids and grandkids they love. Joining our network grows our power to push for policy change.
