Take Action

CIDA’s de-funding of CCIC is imminent – Take Action

Write a letter to Bev Oda and send a copy to CCIC's Gauri Sreenivasan at gauri@ccic.ca.

If relevant, add a paragraph on how CCIC has improved your effectiveness as a development actor.

Sample letter:

The Hon. Bev Oda, P.C., M.P.
Minister of International Cooperation
House of Commons
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6
Oda.B@parl.gc.ca

 

Dear Minister,

I am writing to express my dismay and concern that the Canadian Council for International Co-operation – after decades of partnership  with CIDA may now be defunded.

Humanitarian agencies and development groups look to the Council as a key source of information, analysis and proposals on foreign aid and to be a voice for the sector. CCIC also manages the most widely subscribed Code of Ethics for development groups operating overseas. For more than 40 years, the Council has also been a close collaborator of CIDA – for example in working together on special proposals on civil society and aid effectiveness in Accra in 2008 and more recently in facilitating information and coordination with civil society actors in the response to the Haiti Earthquake.

The Council supports aid agencies and those doing international development cooperation to do their job better. CIDA should be supporting the Council.

 

Sincerely,
