Building a world of justice

We are a democratic movement for international solidarity that supports partners in the Global South in the pursuit of alternatives to unjust social, political, economic and environmental structures.

We educate Canadians about the causes of the impoverishment of peoples and to mobilize them to act for change.

People and Planet First

Canadians can freely speak up for rights and against injustices. In the Global South, however, many communities are threatened and criminalized for defending their right to a healthy environment. 

This is why we have been advocating for legislation on corporate due diligence since September of last year. We have made great progress, but our work is not done! Let’s continue to call on the federal government to end Canadian companies’ abuses abroad and to help affected communities access justice.
