Partner With Us
We partner with organizations to advance our mission forward.
Help us make a social impact today! Join our ecosystem of corporate partners who see the importance of helping the community. As a partner and supporter of FBC your company can ensure it is taking an equitable approach to its corporate social responsibility goals. FBC was founded around the principle that systemic barriers have kept the Black Canadian community underserved. Through our research, community projects, and advocacy we strive to dismantle anti-black racism and support growth in economics, health, justice, and education. We work with our national community and allies to build bridges, partnerships, and to strengthen our voice and impact for change.
Below you will find examples of ways your organization can support and work with FBC to create systemic change but do not be afraid to share your ideas as well.

We believe in transformative partnerships that will have a rippling positive social impact.
Current Project Opportunities
Barriers to Employment
We are currently looking to partner with companies in the Federally Regulated Sector to launch our Barriers to Employment project. This project is focused on the barriers faced by community members in obtaining employment within the federally regulated financial industry, working alongside RBC and Employment Social Development Canada, to improve understanding of industry barriers, tools, and guides for industry-specific needs. In identifying and addressing these barriers across professional industries.
In order to strengthen the voice of Black Canadians across Canada and ensure stability in our community engagement practices, we have created various structures, tables, and groups to support our mandate such as: Provincial Hubs, a National Youth Council, an Ally and Elders Advisory and a Black Led Groups Network entitled: Partners in Principle. Corporate gifts from companies like yours, allow us to ensure that these core engagement structures remain stable, funded, and support organizing for all projects, research, and advocacy. These structures are what makes the FBC authentic, accessible, and transparent to the community supporting our mantra – “Nothing about us without us”.
Furthermore, core development of any community serving organization is always needed and we appreciate all gifts of support to ensure we can support our staff, volunteers, infrastructure, removal of precarious employment opportunities, and allows us financial stability to focus on serving the community across Canada.
