International Development Week 2019

Posted January 29th 2019

This year International Development Week is happening from February 3 - 9, 2019.

Since 1990, this national event has celebrated how Canadians are taking on global challenges and making a difference both at home and around the world. It’s a chance to recognize, connect with and inspire one another as we work together toward a more just world for everyone.

This year’s theme Together for Gender Equality embodies Canada’s commitment to the global effort to address gender inequality and encourages all Canadians to be change-makers in advancing gender equality in the world.
