Meet OCIC’s 2013 Global Changemakers

Each of our eight profiled 2013 Global Changmakers were nominated by an OCIC member organization for the exceptional and noteworthy contributions they have made as volunteers, interns or staff. They were selected by a provincial jury, and came together to share their stories and to be recognized by the Council, our members, family and friends in January 2013. We hope you will be inspired by their efforts to make a difference, and their collective call to action in the videos below.
