The Peace & Justice Office is MCC’s voice to the Canadian government, advocating for policies that support our work of relief, development and peacebuilding.

We also inform Canadians about political issues and how they can get involved.

As we respond to the conflict in Ukraine and other conflicts around the world, we ask the Canadian government to respond with nonviolence at every level of response, through encouraging the use of tools such as diplomacy, disarmament and conflict resolution at the international level and through providing more substantial support for non-violent locally-led peacebuilding.

Join us in asking for more substantial and comprehensive support for non-violent locally-led peacebuilding within Canada’s Official Development Assistance.
