About Us

Founded in 1945 with the creation of the CARE Package, CARE is a global confederation working to fight poverty and social injustice in the world, with a specific focus on women and girls. We work side-by-side with communities to understand the root causes of poverty and find innovative, locally-led solutions.

CARE Canada is headquartered in Ottawa, with staff based across the country and around the globe. We work closely with the Government of Canada and other Canadian and global partners, and with incredible women’s rights organizations in the countries we work in. Find out more in our Strategic Plan 2021-2025. 

We seek to inspire all Canadians to join us in investing in women to create a better, more equal world for us all!
