Supporting Canadian small and medium organizations (SMOs), Educators and Youth

The Spur Change program is a 5-year initiative of the Inter-council Network (ICN), funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC), aiming to

  • Increase the effectiveness of SMOs to deliver sustainable results in support of the Feminist International Assistance Policy and the Sustainable Development Goals;
  • Support educators in engaging school communities on global issues;
  • Foster youth action on the Sustainable Development Goals.


All SMOs meeting the following GAC criteria across Canada are invited to participate in the program.

  • The consolidated revenue in the organization’s financial statements is equal to or less than $10 million (this limitation does not apply to educational institutions)
  • The organization does not have annual overseas expenditures exceeding $2 million in development assistance (i.e. projects administered with the promotion of the economic development and welfare of developing countries as their main objective – regardless of the funding source)
  • SMOs can be civil society organizations, education institutions, private sector or social enterprises
  • SMOs must be legally incorporated in Canada


All educators across Canada interested in and committed to inspiring and engaging their school communities towards meaningful, effective and sustainable action on global issues are invited to participate.
