Our Finances and Accountability

How we use your money to shape change

Our Commitment To Accountability

We know it's important to you that your donation is being used effectively. It's important to us, too. We are committed to the highest standards of reporting and are accredited by Imagine Canada.

Accreditation is given to charities and nonprofits that have taken action through the Standards Program by identifying and reducing organizational risk, improving board governance practices, being transparent and accountable with finances and fundraising, and fostering a strong workforce.

The Trustmark is a symbol of excellence and leadership in the charitable sector.  A symbol Canadian donors can trust.

The Standards Program Trustmark is a mark of Imagine Canada used under licence by Oxfam Canada.

Year in Review

Oxfam has stepped up the work with our partners around the world in support of the world’s poorest and most marginalized by consistently putting women at the centre of everything we do.

Thanks to you, we have not only increased our resources and capacity to respond to emergency and development needs; we have also intensified our advocacy and influencing work.

We are on the ground in 87 countries, working to win the twin struggles against gender and economic inequalities and to make the world a fairer, better place.

Thank you for your support.
