Report Impact Report 2020-2021 View the Report 2020-2021 was an important year. COVID-19 revealed a deep disconnect between animals, people, and the environments we share. Critical conversations about race shone a light on the overwhelming environmental inequity faced by so many. The context in which we do our work became more complex, and – I believe – more important. So we began planting seeds for a new vision of JGI Canada. We took time to develop a better understanding of the role we could play, the communities we serve, and the diffference we truly want to make. This report outlines our team’s tireless effort to keep making a difference during this important, albeit disruptive year. But I wanted you to know about this less-visible work happening behind the scenes. Our new strategic direction – a result of this difficult year – is now in full effect, and the seeds of this work are growing. We’ll be unveiling our 2021-2022 Annual Report in November of 2022, and I look forward to sharing this growth with you then. Thank you for being with us. Together, we will keep making an impact.

Roots & Shoots COVID-19 didn’t stop Roots & Shoots participants from making a difference.
