Cardus means main street. They are here seeking common good, even where streets are emptied and we’re apart.

Such flourishing can only happen if we truly understand how we work justly, how we live peaceably in our communities, how we learn well in our schools, how our families thrive, and how our laws support foundational freedoms.

Like all research organizations, Cardus operates within a philosophical framework. They are rooted in 2,000 years of Christian social thought, which they seek to apply to our modern social context.

They use independent research to support evidence-based policy and social analysis, facilitate robust public dialogue, and to produce thought-provoking commentary. As a non-partisan think tank and registered charity, Cardus welcomes public and institutional engagement with our work—agree or disagree.
