How We Started. Why We Continue.

Oftentimes, success in nearly any endeavor is influenced by the people and resources that surround us—our circle of friends, our sphere of influence, the cyclical nature of habits, and even the sweeping hands of a clock. When we encircle ourselves with positive support through mentorships, education and training, and the right resources anything is possible.

That’s what the circles represent. Each circle is a continual source of influence, each linking to the other and creating the greatest impact.


Circles® Canada works to address poverty by increasing the capacity of communities. Our approach combines best practices in several disciplines including community organizing, case management, grassroots leadership, S.M.A.R.T. goal setting, financial literacy, mentoring, peer-to-peer counseling and learning, and child/youth development.

Our mission is to inspire and equip families and communities to thrive and resolve poverty. The underlying foundation of the Circles® Canada model is to engage people and organizations in the community to end poverty.
