Institute for Media, Policy and Civil Society

The Institute for Media, Policy and Civil Society (IMPACS) is committed to the “expansion and protection of democracy and the strengthening of civil society.” IMPACS understands that civil society (the space between the state and the market where people join together) and the media should communicate the issues that are important to their communities in order to have them better represented in public policy debates.

The work of IMPACS is carried out in three ways – through the Communications Centre (to help civil society organizations develop effective outreach skills), the Charities and Democracy Project (to evaluate laws that apply to advocacy activities), and the International Media program (to foster the development of a free and effective media). Based in Vancouver, IMPACS also has an office in Toronto, as well as several satellite offices abroad.
