What we Fund

The CAFP Educational Foundation funds projects and activities, submitted by registered charitable organizations, that contribute to civic education and strengthen democratic institutions in Canada and internationally. Projects must demonstrate how they will contribute to the mission of the Foundation and are approved by its Board of Directors.

Parliament to campus

We are proud to announce that our Educational Foundation’s Parliament to Campus Program is relaunching under the leadership of Dr. Shannon Sampert.

Parliament to Campus seeks to bring former Parliamentarians, either in person or by using virtual technology, to university campuses to speak to university students.  During a Parliament to Campus session, a former Parliamentarian shares their insights and experience of serving in elected office.

If you wish to have a guest speaker, or participate in this program, please contact Shannon directly if you’re interested and would like more details at [email protected].
