Supporting Local Charities

Introduction Capital is pleased to support these local charities that provide much-needed assistance to women and youth in crisis. A portion of registration revenue from the Canadian Alternative Investment Forum is donated to these groups each year. 

Hope. Help. Healing.

Sharing Personal Stories

Introduction Capital believes in the power of sharing personal stories on positive mental health, bullying prevention and addiction & recovery. To that end, we support YouthSpeak, whose vision is that no child or youth feels alone, and those who are struggling with mental health or other challenges are connected to available support to improve their overall well-being.

Their mission is to increase the resiliency of youth facing challenges through leadership training, empowering them to share their personal stories in order to promote mental health and well-being, empathy, and hope in assemblies and workshops.
