Humanitarian Coalition

Oxfam Canada is a proud member of the Humanitarian Coalition.

January 31, 2017

The Humanitarian Coalition brings together Canada's leading aid agencies to finance and coordinate relief efforts in times of urgent international humanitarian crises. Member agencies include: Canadian Lutheran World Relief, CARE Canada, Islamic Relief, Oxfam Canada, Oxfam-Québec, Plan Canada and Save the Children Canada.

With a combined presence in more than 150 countries, the Humanitarian Coalition members work together to eliminate unnecessary competition, reduce the duplication of administrative costs, inform the public on humanitarian needs and increase the impact of Canadian humanitarian responses. Each member agency brings its specific expertise to implementing humanitarian programs.

By collaborating, we are able to keep appeal management expenses to a maximum of 12%, thus allocating 88% of donations to programming.
Membership in the Humanitarian Coalition is open, but limited to registered Canadian charities with established expertise and capacity in international humanitarian response.

Together, saving more lives.
