ACORN Canada is among the largest community based membership organizations in Canada with nearly 30,000 members in 20 neighbourhood chapters in 4 cities across Canada.
Since ACORN Canada's founding in 2004, we have taken action and won victories on issues of concern to our membership. Their priorities include: higher wages for low wage workers, regulation of predatory payday lenders, better housing for tenants, and increased investment from banks and governments in working family communities.
ACORN Canada achieves these goals through organizing new communities to build the power necessary to win change through direct action, negotiation, and legislation.
ACORN Canada's goal is to build a powerful dynamic national organization for low and moderate income families. We believe that transforming the conditions that adversely affect millions of Canadians can best be achieved with a national active membership - members deeply invested in their organization and focused on lasting socio-economic change.
