Tamarack’s Learning Centre exists to empower community changemakers to achieve greater impact. We draw upon our 15 years of experience leading community change and advancing practice to support municipalities, funders, non-profits, and community leaders through on-demand coaching and consulting, in-person and digital training, and publications that guide change efforts. Last year alone, over 24,000 changemakers engaged with us and over 90 client organizations contracted us for consulting services to support them through their most pressing challenges.

We support our learning network in developing five interconnected practices that lead to community change:
  • Collective Impact: How can we mobilize collaboration across sectors for systems change?
  • Community Engagement: How can we engage the community to create and realize bold visions for the future?
  • Collaborative Leadership: How can we bring the right people together in constructive ways?
  • Community Innovation: How can we create, test, and scale new approaches?
  • Evaluating Impact: How can we identify and amplify what works?
As a registered charity, all of your investments as clients and learners goes back into providing content and tools on an open-source platform to build the capacity in the field. By working with us, you help support the efforts of changemakers in your community and worldwide.

Tamarack Institute is a remote organization with decentralized offices across the country so that our team can work within their own communities - this is great for quality of life and for the environment. Please meet our team and reach out directly to the most appropriate person. If you're not sure – take a guess! We'd love to hear from you and are happy to help you connect with the right person.
