We exist to address the issues of social isolation, loneliness and disconnection through the power of human connection
We exist to help Canadians better understand the impact of social isolation, the objective state of being disconnected from or having few ties with other people, and it’s impact on our health and wellbeing. Greater understanding is the first step to building healthier connection habits moving forward.
We exist to educate Canadians to recognize the issue of loneliness, the subjective distressing feeling associated with a deficiency in the quantity or quality of social and emotional relationships, in their lives and in the lives of others, and to act as a catalyst that inspires us all to take action to address our social health needs.
We exist to help close the growing disconnection in our society. By inspiring individuals, families, schools, businesses and communities to better understand the issues that develop as we spend less time face-to-face, and catalyzing them to reach out and get connected, we can make the world a happier and healthier place one face-to-face conversation at a time.
