About the Ivey Foundation

History

The Ivey Foundation was incorporated as a private charitable foundation 31 December 1947 by the late Richard G. Ivey, Q.C., LL.D., and his son the late Richard M. Ivey, C.C., Q.C., LL.D. The mission of the Foundation is to improve the well-being of Canadians by focusing its resources on selected issues of significance. With a long history of supporting excellence and valuing transparency and accountability, the Foundation also embraces change as a necessary part of its evolution.

The primary focus of the Foundation is the Economy and Environment Program, established in 2014 as a strategic priority. Through the program, the Foundation supports new thinking around innovative approaches to policy and practice that advance sustainability in Canada. Working in this dynamic space requires iterative learning and adaptation based on Canada’s shifting socio-economic and political contexts, and the feedback from organizations we support.
