Climate Reality Canada | Good Governance for All Award 2020

Meet the 2020 winner.

Congratulations to The Climate Reality Project Canada, the not-for-profit winner of the Aprio’s 2020 Good Governance for All Award!

Our annual Good Governance for All Award recognizes a deserving not-for-profit by providing Aprio board portal software for free to better engage board members, run board meetings more efficiently, and ensure that board information is kept secure.

The Climate Reality Project Canada serves as the Canadian branch of a global movement of more than 21,000 dedicated volunteers in 154 countries around the world.

Organization Impact

Climate Reality Canada empowers its volunteers to be a critical part of the climate change conversation in Canada. To date, their volunteers have delivered thousands of climate presentations, reaching out to over 700,000 Canadians across the country.

Governance Needs

The organization currently sends its board materials and communicates with directors via email, which can be time consuming, confusing, and unsecure. In addition, directors are not able to easily access documents for future reference or effective participation.

Potential Benefits

The Aprio board portal will allow Climate Reality Canada’s board members to more efficiently manage their board work. All communication and board materials can now be shared and stored in one secure location, and board meeting preparation will become more efficient.

Words from the winner…

“We’re dedicated to providing the pedagogy and communication tools to our volunteers so that they can initiate climate conversations with their network in a culturally relevant way and unite their communities under a common mission. Over the last decade, we’re proud to say that our Climate Reality Leaders have delivered thousands of presentations, reaching out to close to 700,000 Canadians from all walks of life to educate and engage them on the climate crisis. We are truly grateful to be able to benefit from having access to Aprio, which will help us to more efficiently prepare for board meetings and streamline our communications with board members.”

Executive Director, The Climate Reality Project Canada

Board comments…

“For many not-for-profit organizations, including ours, sophisticated board portal software is out of reach. Because I’ve used Aprio on another board, I’ve seen firsthand how smooth and seamless the implementation and experience is. The board at Climate Reality Canada is looking forward to having Aprio to securely centralize all our board materials, making them easy to access before and after our board meetings. Aprio will also help us to have a better understanding of what’s going on in the organization. It’s really self-evident that having Aprio software is worth it.”
