Work with us to achieve positive change

At the heart of all we do is a spirit of collaboration. Our programs are designed to include a broad range of participants and to provide opportunities for growth through partnership.

Partners of The Gordon Foundation are as diverse as the communities we work with, and include a variety of public and private sector supporters. If you are passionate about the North or protecting Canada's water, we want to hear from you. From short-term partnership opportunities to longer-term program support, we are interested in building relationships with individuals, organizations, and communities that share a passion for the work we do. Our partners are active and reliable members of our team, sharing our commitment to setting ambitious goals and working hard to exceed them.

The Foundation At a Glance

  • "When I look to the future, I see strong Indigenous leaders advocating with a clear, confident voice for the values and needs of their peoples. Many of those voices will surely be Jane Glassco Northern Fellows."

Working with these organizations has broadened our reach, and increased our impact.

  • Forum for Leadership On Water

    Since FLOW’s establishment in 2007, The Gordon Foundation has worked with the members of FLOW to study and promote some of the most pressing water issues in Canada.

  • Canada Water Week

    Since 2011 The Gordon Foundation has worked with WWF-Canada, Living Lakes Canada, and more recently the Canadian Freshwater Alliance to co-manage this annual celebration of water each March in conjunction with World Water Day on March 22.

  • Ontario Arts Foundation

    The Elizabeth L. Gordon Art Program is managed for the Foundation by The Ontario Arts Foundation. The Program aims to foster a broader appreciation of Canadian visual art and artists by assisting public art galleries and museums in Ontario to grow their permanent collections, increase the public’s knowledge of collecting and permanent collections, and support community engagement between a gallery or museum and its local community.

  • Government of the Northwest Territories

    DataStream was first piloted in the Mackenzie Basin through a unique collaboration between The Gordon Foundation and the Government of the Northwest Territories, DataStream’s founding partner.
