To celebrate Canada150, the CBC put out a call, looking for changemakers 19-40 that were making a difference in their communities. After a voting round that went to the public, we were selected as winners. Our prize? A short documentary about our efforts, and the founding of our organization. Here is all of the content related to #WeAretheChange, including the We Are Canada documentary that was made about us.
