The Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) was initially and intentionally developed without government funding. As a result, the project has enjoyed a good degree of developmental independence.
In the early years, the work of the CIW was funded entirely by the Atkinson Charitable Foundation (ACF), but since 2005, it has been supported by a number of organizations in a Funders' Alliance.
Current members of our Alliance include:
- Atkinson Charitable Foundation; and
- University of Waterloo (primarily in kind office space and services).
Our gratitude goes to former members of the Alliance:
- Canadian Council on Learning;
- J.W. McConnell Family Foundation;
- Lawson Foundation;
- Province of Ontario; and
- RBC Foundation.
We are actively seeking new organizations to join our Funders' Alliance. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
