It just takes one minute to make a difference. One choice can change your life. One committed moment of courage can show your true character. And one person choosing civility can have tremendous, long-term impact on others.

Are you ready to join the circle of civility and take one small step towards fostering civility by starting a civility initiative in your home, workplace or community?

For not-for-profit organizations or communities
In the groundbreaking book, "Bowling Alone: the Collapse and Revival of American Community," Dr. Robert Putnam cites stunning statistics about the physical effects of positive social involvement. Civility matters because it affects our emotional health, our physical health and our community health.

Because It Matters Canada is a community civility initiative program modeled after - an extraordinary community civility initiative created by the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and sustained by the community.

The goal of the initiative is to promote civility in workplaces, neighborhoods, civic organizations, and schools.  The vision and commitment of the Because It Matters leadership team has resulted in a strengthening of the social fabric of the region.

In launching Because It Matters Canada, Civility Experts hopes to build upon the benchmark set by Wendy Deming, Chief of Staff – and the team, at the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and foster awareness and interest in community civility initiatives across Canada.
