Our Mission

Since 2010, AMISTAD CANADA has been dedicated to improving the lives of people in need through Projects focused on health and education. Our projects are in Mexico.

AMISTAD CANADA will appeal to:

- Canadians who feel a strong connection to Mexico because they are residents or snowbirds and want to respond to the many Mexicans who have welcomed them into their country;

- Canadians whose work and personal lives relate to our program activities;

- Canadians with personal and family ties to Latin America;

- And, of course, we hope it will appeal to all Canadians who are committed to helping people in need wherever they are.
