Our Work

 
CFSC works with partners locally and internationally (seen here partners at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York).

We’re the peace and social justice agency of Quakers in Canada. Our work is aligned with the concerns of Quakers from across the country, but we also choose projects based on where we see a need that isn’t already being filled, and where we feel we can effectively support positive changes (read more about how we work).

Our peace and social justice work is always guided by our values and by our strategic plan.

A simple summary of our plan is below. Other pages on this site have more details about our various areas of work. Have a look around and learn more!
