The impact of CIDA's funding reduction to Development and Peace describes Development and Peace's achievements in collaboration with CIDA over four decades and gives testimonials of the consequences of the funding reduction on our partners and countries in the Global South.

In our Q&A on international development, the state of Canada's international aid as well at its new orientations are addressed.

Members' initiatives
Members' Initiatives

In reaction to CIDA’s funding reduction to Development and Peace, our members have been quick to react and develop promising and creative initiatives.

A Good Friday Fast allowed to raise awareness and funds.

The One Dollar for One World campaign continues: send $1 to your MP, a symbolic amount to let him know your discontent.

To learn more about these initiatives, visit the members’ blog.


Our members are now proposing a new action: a petition to the House of Commons on Financial support for the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace.

The petition aims to having Canada re-commit to contributing 0.7% of its GDP to Official Development Assistance and to have the funding requested by D&P granted in full.
Find all the details here.

Take action now: download the petition and pass it around.
