Who Funds the Century Initiative?

It is crucial to understand the constellation of interests benefiting from, and lobbying for, high levels of immigration to Canada.

An important immigration lobby is the Century Initiative, which advocates for Canada’s population to be increased to 100 million by 2100. I have compiled a list of the banks, corporations, foundations and individuals who donated to the Century Initiative in 2022. All of this information is available in their 2022 Annual Report. For those hearing about this group for the first time, check out my own report for some background information.

– Scotiabank

– TD Bank

It has a market cap of $25 billion, and over 30,000 employees. Power Corporation of Canada has historically wielded considerable influence in Canadian politics.
