CARE Canada was established in 1946 as part of an international network bringing emergency relief to the people of Europe. CARE's commitment to humanitarian assistance continues to this day, and is complimented by a broad range of long-term development programmes in water and community health, agroforestry and conservation, and small enterprise and income generation.
CARE Canada is an operational member of the CARE International network, supporting and implementing development projects and relief efforts around the world. We are also the lead CARE member responsible for coordinating the overall efforts of the CARE International network in Cameroon, Chad, Colombia, Cuba, Timor-Leste, Indonesia, Kenya, the Russian Federation (Ingushetia and Chechnya), Zambia and Zimbabwe. CARE Canada operates projects in a total of 46 countries. Guided by the aspirations of local communities, we pursue our mission with both excellence and compassion because the people whom we serve deserve nothing less.
