Thanks to you, 2016 was a pivotal year for the SNAP® National Expansion.  With generous investments from our venture philanthropy partners, as well as government, foundation, corporate and individual supporters, our campaign reached 90 per cent of its goal. Because of this investment, SNAP is now available in over 30 sites across Canada. 

Our team continues to work hard to ensure that SNAP is accessible to 20,000 children and families in 140 communities from coast to coast. Reaching these children will result in a social impact of just under $3 billion of societal savings in criminal justice system costs alone, by helping high-risk children regulate disruptive and aggressive behaviours.

The SNAP National Expansion will transform the face of children’s mental health in Canada by addressing unmet service needs in schools and communities.

  • One in five children in Canada struggle with mental health issues, with the most common problem being an inability to regulate disruptive and aggressive behaviours. Approximately 80 per cent of these vulnerable children are not able to access the help they need.
  • SNAP – Stop Now And Plan – is a proven technique that helps children make better choices ‘in the moment’, and is shown to be the single most effective means of improving the mental health and behaviour of at-risk children, and their families.
  • With your financial investment, we can continue to expand our award-winning program across Canada, and forever change the lives of children and families.

SNAP was selected by the LEAP: The Centre for Social Impact, as its inaugural portfolio charity. The Centre applies the discipline of private equity investing to select, support and scale charities with quantifiable social impact. The Centre teams up high-potential charities with forward-thinking investors and private sector expertise to create measurable and sustainable benefits to society. The SNAP team is delighted to have LEAP’s partnership in helping bring SNAP to as many children and families as possible, forever changing the lives of at-risk children from coast to coast.
