Each year, we offer a wide variety of events for members and non-member grantmaking organizations to assist with professional development and peer learning opportunities.

In addition, PFC hosts a yearly gathering of leaders in the philanthropic sector from Canada and across the world to exchange ideas, learn from each other and discuss important issues facing our communities.

DEI Webinar (in English only), March 13th, 2019, 1:00 PM until 2 PM EST

As Canada’s population diversity grows, and as our community partners and donors themselves include those who are more diverse in background, perspective and approach, it is urgent to ask ourselves how best to acknowledge and include diverse perspectives. How inclusive are the policies and practices of organized philanthropy? Can we learn from the experiences of peers who are finding ways to bring diverse voices to their board tables and to their decision-making around funding?

Come join us for this important conversation!
