About

The True North Initiative is an independent, non-profit research and educational organization dedicated to advancing sound immigration and security policies. Furthermore, True North is a platform for a robust discussion on immigration, security and Canada’s role in the world.

Our mission is to champion sound immigration and security policies and lead a national conversation on how immigration can boost the economy. We stand on guard for Canadian values of individual liberty, economic freedom, the rule of law, human dignity, pluralism and peace.

Canada is the best country in the world, and we want to ensure that our immigration policies build upon our existing strengths and advantages.

The True North Initiative draws together scholars, activists, journalists and people of all backgrounds to discuss and promote a free, open and secure society in Canada.


Candice Malcolm
Founder & Senior Fellow
Our founder and senior fellow, Candice Malcolm, is well-known as the author of the best-selling books, Generation Screwed and Losing True North. Candice also provides no-nonsense analysis and hard hitting opinion in her role as a nationally-syndicated columnist for the Toronto Sun. Candice knows how the deck is stacked against common-sense policies in Ottawa, as she has seen first-hand dozens of leftist organizations pressuring the Canadian government towards irresponsible immigration policies. Candice created the True North Initiative as an organization that would promote sound immigration policy, Canadian interests and the rule of law.
