Canadians are rightly proud of their country’s enviable position amongst the world’s best governed nations. Yet, we shouldn't take Canada's prosperity for granted.

History has shown us that nations often take the wrong economic path. Canada is not immune from that danger. After all, short-term thinking and special interest groups are constantly pushing agendas that will damage our economy. 

That's why it's important to have a strong and vibrant C.D. Howe Institute, an organization that makes a case for growth-friendly policy with a respected voice that's heeded by both opinion leaders and government officials.

Yes, Canada needs the C.D. Howe Institute - and right now the C.D. Howe Institute needs you.  

Please make a generous contribution to the C.D. Howe Institute so we can continue to promote economic policies that will enrich our nation and safeguard our standard of living.  

The C.D. Howe Institute's successes through the years, whether on deficit reduction, inflation control, international trade or more competitive tax rates - were all due to donations from you and from other like-minded Canadians.

Unlike other organizations, we have no eight-figure endowments or major, multi-year government grants. 

Instead, we rely entirely on the voluntary support of individuals and organizations who care about Canada's future. 

So please make an online contribution of $50, $250, $500, $1,000, $5,000 or $10,000. No gift is too small. And no gift is too large!
