Our policy and advocacy work.
For years, our network of thousands of passionate and highly skilled advocates has challenged Canada to become a better global citizen. Thanks to the ongoing campaign efforts of the EWB community, tens of thousands of Canadians have an increased knowledge of global issues and the importance of speaking out to drive change.
We were the first voice urging the government to untie aid in 2004, and EWB members spent over three years working to increase the impact and accountability of Canada’s aid by building support for the Better Aid Bill (Bill C-293).
With our wide and impassioned grassroots network, we mobilize the public, engage with MPs and political figures, and initiate meetings with high-level decision makers to incite systemic improvement for Canada and the world.
