Canadian Peace Alliance
About this Member
The Canadian Peace Alliance (CPA) is Canada's largest umbrella peace organization. Since its foundation in 1985 the organization has been helping member groups to act as a broad network, in order to provide a strong, coordinated voice for peace issues at the national level.
CPA member groups range from grassroots community groups to major pan-Canadian organizations. Its goals include redirecting funds from military spending to human needs; working toward global nuclear disarmament; making Canada a consistent leader for world peace; strengthening world institutions for the peaceful resolution of conflict; and protecting the rights of all people to work for peace, social & economic justice.
To this end, CPA organizes cross-Canada campaigns and actions; arranges political lobbying sessions between member groups and key political leaders on Parliament Hill; facilitates the development of strategies for the Canadian peace movement; and produces and distributes education and action materials.
The CPA's policy and campaign direction is determined by a bi-annual convention of member groups and by a geographically representative Steering Committee. The CPA strives for regional and sectoral balance and gender parity at all levels.
