Our Impact

Inspiring Youth and Driving Canada's Economy by $105 Million Annually

To measure the value of the programs delivered by JA across Canada, The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) recently completed a year-long study to assess the impact of JA Canada’s mission to inspire youth to make better financial decisions, start a company, develop a career plan and express their innovative spirit.

The study found that JA makes a substantial, positive impact on the Canadian economy. According to the study:

•  The work of JA has a direct impact of $105 million on Canada's economy each year.

•  JA in Canada creates an annual return to society of $45 for every $1 received by supporters.

•  Achievers are 3X more likely to hold senior and middle management positions in their respective organizations.

•  Achievers are 50% more likely to open their own business, which leads to innovation, jobs and wealth creation.

•  JA alumni launch 6,500 companies a year, a rate 50% higher than the Canadian average.

Not only are they critical toward the development of a skilled and talented workforce, they motivate a new generation of responsible citizens as well.

Junior Achievers are more likely to stay in school, pursue a career in business, be prepared for work, open their own business, create jobs, and earn more. Across Canada, JA impacts the most students, delivers the most programs, and provides both quantity and quality outcomes.
