    Where Dreams Come To Grow

    ABOUT US

    We Are Driving Innovation

    The Dream Legacy Foundation (DLF) is fostering black entrepreneurship across Canada.

     

    With our six core program areas, we are harnessing the talent that is found within the Black community in Canada.

     

    We aim to #ChangeTheNarrative. From health research to economic inclusion, we are taking a holistic and self-help approach to eliminating all systemic barriers so that our communities can thrive.

     

    There is a wealth of entrepreneurial talent and a hunger for innovation that are within our community. The DLF is working towards creating the conditions for unlocking that full potential.
