Adopting Common Measures

Unleash the impact of your social purpose enterprise

** This program has moved to Social Innovation Canada. For current information, please visit

Are you interested in…

  • Clearly communicating your impact to partners, supporters, customers, and donors? 
  • Broadcasting your impact goals and achievements across Canada and globally?
  • Aligning your impact with one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (like Good Health and Well-being, Food Security, or Decent Work and Economic Growth)?

We can help you strengthen how you communicate your impact to your stakeholders.

As part of the Adopting Common Measures program, you will get:

  • One-on-one sessions to help kickstart your impact conversation
  • Facilitated workshops on the Common Foundation Approach to Impact Measurement
  • Access to a Community of Practice with similar organizations who want to know more about the benefits of tracking their impact and aligning their goals with the SDGs

Community of Practice

Take part in a nationwide discussion around how your organization can effectively track, measure and report progress towards your impact goals.

Through facilitated conversations, content expert presentations, peer-learning, resources and software, the community is there to support your work.

The Community of Practice is free to join and membership is open to Canadian organizations wanting to learn or improve their capacity in social impact measurement.

Members who complete all sessions will receive a Professional Development Certificate: Tracking Social Impact using Common Foundations. This certificate will confirm an understanding and application of the planning, measuring and reporting efforts of your impact.

Our Adopting Common Measures Community of Practice kicks off on Wednesday, January 19, 2022. The Community of Practice will meet every two weeks from January 19 to April 27 – 8 sessions in total.

Our current Community of Practice is at capacity. We will be running another Community of Practice in Fall 2022. Please fill out the form below to get notified when the registration opens, and to receive updates about other upcoming events.
