Our Story

Fight Inequality. Beat Poverty.

Oxfam Canada is an affiliate of the international Oxfam Confederation networked in 85 countries as part of a global movement for change.

Our mission is to build lasting solutions to poverty and injustice, focusing on improving lives and promoting the rights of women and girls.

We work directly with communities, partners and women’s rights organizations to challenge the systems perpetuating inequality and keeping people poor. Together we seek to influence those in power to ensure that women trapped in poverty have a say in the critical decisions that affect them, their families and entire communities.

Because ending global poverty begins with women’s rights.

Together, We’re Tackling Inequality in the Canadian Fashion Industry.
