Thanks for growing our power to fix Canada's broken generational system!

Hard Truths to Get You Started

Check out Hard Truths, our podcast and video series exploring how we can fix Canada's broken generational system. We hope you'll find it a refreshing antidote to myths about younger people being lazy and entitled and older people being poor and vulnerable. Because the reality is that generational tensions aren’t primarily about individual decisions – they’re baked into systems that shape the opportunities and obstacles we face. 

What to Expect From Us

  • A fresh perspective on problems that have been dogging Canada for years. Like unaffordable housing and child care, a medical care system that doesn’t make people healthy, rising government debt, and the risks of climate change.
  • Trustworthiness. Above all, we provide high-quality, evidence-based data and analysis. Our roots in the academic world ensure that we’re rigorous and hard to discredit.
  • Fresh 💼 briefings in your inbox about once a month. Keeping you armed, and hopefully, inspired. (If you'd like to hear from us more often, join our community on Substack too!)
  • Hard-hitting (but always non-partisan) information at key moments when the scales of politics are tipped in our favour – during elections, and when governments are setting spending priorities in their budgets
