Researcher / Research team

Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA)


The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives is an independent, non-partisan research institute concerned with issues of social, economic and environmental justice. Founded in 1980, the CCPA is one of Canada’s leading progressive voices in public policy debates.

We have a National Office in Ottawa, and provincial offices in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Nova Scotia.
Original, hard-hitting research

We work with top-notch researchers to shed light on the key issues facing Canada.

The CCPA is a leading and respected voice on the gap between the rich and the rest of us in Canada.
Our groundbreaking work on climate justice has shown how Canada can create green jobs and transition to a sustainable economy.
Our provincial offices lead the way on emerging provincial and municipal issues and create space for a progressive exchange of ideas and solutions.
Our national flagship program, the Alternative Federal Budget continues to demonstrate what a government can achieve if it were truly committed to an agenda that reflects the values of the large majority of Canadians.
