Welcome to AIC!

ACORN Institute Canada (AIC) is a charitable organization that uses research and training to address the problems in low-income communities.  We believe that the poverty, discrimination, and community deterioration that exists in low-income communities is a result of a lack civic engagement, community leadership and financial literacy. Participants in our leadership development program have taken on many pressing issues, from housing to internet access, while building skills and forging strong bonds with their neighbours.

ACORN Institute Canada is a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency, and we work with community partners across Canada to carry out our projects.
