ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) Canada is an independent national organization of low- and moderate-income families. We have over 80,000 members organized into twenty neighbourhood chapters in nine cities across Canada. We believe that social and economic justice can best be achieved with a national active membership who are invested in their organization and focused on building power for change!
Since 2004 our members have won several important victories including: Provincial Payday Lending legislation in Ontario and BC, and working in coalition to raise the Minimum Wage in Ontario to $11/hour plus indexing to inflation.
Other national and provincial campaigns: Remittance Justice, Wages Rising, Healthy Homes and Disability and Social Assistance Rights. All of our offices offer free tax preparation services.
