CARE Canada's mission is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world. Drawing strength from our global diversity, resources, and experience, we promote innovative solutions and are advocates for global responsibility. We facilitate lasting change by:
Strengthening capacity for self-help;
Influencing policy decisions at all levels;
Providing economic opportunity;
Addressing discrimination in all its forms;
Deliver relief in emergencies.
Guided by the aspirations of local communities, we pursue our mission with both excellence and compassion because the people whom we serve deserve nothing less.
About CARE CANADA
CARE Canada was established in 1946 as part of an international network bringing emergency relief to the people of Europe. CARE's commitment to humanitarian assistance continues to this day and is complemented by a broad range of long-term development programmes in water and community health, agroforestry and conservation, and small enterprise and income generation.
80,000 individual, corporate, foundation, community group, and service club donors across Canada support CARE's work.
CARE works with communities in need to improve living conditions. CARE is also there in the aftermath of a disaster or social conflict, providing urgently needed food, water, and shelter. Once the immediate crisis is over, CARE works with communities to re-establish stability.
