Summary The Broadbent Institute is Canada’s leading progressive, independent organization championing change through the promotion of democracy, equality, and sustainability and the training of a new generation of leaders. They are proud of Canada’s tradition as a diverse, fair, just, and inclusive society. These values matter to them today, and they matter to their future. The vast majority of Canadians share these progressive values. At the Broadbent Institute, they believe that the progressive principles and collective efforts can inform new ways of thinking and new approaches to government that equip them to address the challenges facing Canadians.
