Atkinson Decent Work Fund partners participated in a "story slam" about their work in November 2016. Read more >

How are you making your vision of decent work a reality?

We’re part of a growing and energetic community of decent work activists based in Ontario. We’re also engaged in movements for social and economic justice around the world. We’re always listening for promising ideas, innovations and initiatives, and looking for opportunities that:

Put people at the centre. They are deeply connected to residents and their realities.

Recognize strengths, not deficits. They build on individual and community assets.

Bring together unlikely partners. They are multi-disciplinary in nature and scope.

Draw a wide circle. They include whoever is most affected and/or has been historically excluded.

Seek collective impact. They are part of larger social movements or networks.

Inspire and engage. They facilitate participation, learning and innovation.

Tell us how you’re making your vision of decent work a reality. We’d like to help. Check out our grants page and this one-pager on the Atkinson Decent Work Fund as a starting point.
