The Caledon Institute of Social Policy, also Caledon Institute, is a private Canadian think tank focused on social policy. It was founded in 1992.

It is primarily funded by the Maytree Foundation.

The Caledon Institute does not have much public visibility and is infrequently in the news; however, it is thought to play a significant role behind the scenes, as is evident by frequent contact with government departments relative to more visible Canadian think tanks.[1]
