Vision, Values & Mission



Canadian Friends Service Committee - Vision, Values and Mission

Enabling the vision of sustainable and healthy communities is a core goal of CFSC.

CFSC envisions a world in which dignity, justice, peace, human rights, and harmonious relationships with creation are fostered and upheld.


Quakers seek to experience and answer to that of God in all creation. In living out this experience, CFSC’s values are rooted in the Quaker testimonies of peace, integrity, equality, simplicity, and respect for all creation.


CFSC alleviates suffering and develops transformative and sustainable approaches to human rights, justice, and peace. We act through practical assistance, research, education, and policy dialogues.

Quaker faith in practice

While CFSC’s work in the world is rooted in our faith, we never engage in any form of proselytizing (attempting to convert people to Quakerism). We respect and honour the perspectives of those we work with, whether from other faith traditions or of no particular faith.
When asked, we answer questions about Quaker faith and practice, but with the intention of sharing information and mutual learning, not seeking conversion. Here are a few answers to frequently asked questions about Quakerism.
