A small secretariat. A mighty community.
The Common Approach to Impact Measurement is an independent non-profit organization developing standards for impact measurement. We partner with various organizations, including the Government of Canada’s Investment Readiness Program, the Carleton Centre for Community Innovation (3ci) at Carleton University, The Northpine Foundation, the Centre for Social Innovation Institute, and the Ontario Trillium Foundation, on projects and research related to making impact measurement more valuable.
The Common Approach is a community-driven initiative that’s growing across Canada and beyond every day.
