Partnership Africa Canada (PAC) is a coalition of Canadian and African NGOs working together on issues of human rights, human security and sustainable development. In collaboration with its members and other organizations, PAC undertakes research and policy dialogue initiatives on issues affecting Africa.

Objectives

Partnership Africa Canada has three goals:

  • to help its African and Canadian members to strengthen their skills in the area of policy and advocacy relating to issues of sustainable human development in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • to promote, among African, Canadian and international decision-makers, the adoption and implementation of policies that foster sustainable human development in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • to promote greater understanding of, and commitment to, sustainable human development in sub-Saharan Africa, among both Canadian and African publics.

History

Partnership Africa Canada (PAC) was created in 1986 with the support of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and Canadian and African non-governmental organizations (NGOs). As a coalition of Canadian NGOs, PAC financed hundreds of innovative projects that supported sustainable development in sub-Saharan Africa.

PAC's project fund came to an end in 1995 and in January 1996 it changed its mandate to focus on policy work, becoming a coalition of both African and Canadian NGOs.

Structure

Partnership Africa Canada is governed by a Board of Directors that is made up of representatives from Canadian and African member organizations.
