The award-winning Together exhibition criss-crossed the country between 2015-2017, visiting all ten provinces and Canada’s North.
The challenge: An informed and committed global community is crucial to international development efforts. The majority of Canadians say that countries like Canada have a responsibility to help less wealthy nations, but less than half of Canadians say they are knowledgeable about global development – and only one in five donate to the cause.
Our solution: In Canada, we undertake a range of initiatives to engage and inform Canadians from coast-to-coast on critical global issues. From classroom resources to traveling exhibits, and from fundraising campaigns to international internship opportunities, we mobilize the best of our country’s skills, expertise, and funds to build a better future for all.
