SPCW is one of the oldest social justice organizations in Canada. Born out of the same turbulent times that led to the General Strike of 1919, SPCW focuses on change rather than charity to achieve our vision of a sustainable community that is caring, just and equitable.
- We are a membership based organization, working to identify gaps, build capacity and support community-led initiatives.
- We work primarily on issues related to poverty as it is the major barrier to full social inclusion. We identify gaps in services and resources and work to fill them through coalition building.
- We also research and identify barriers created by public policy at all levels of government and advocate for progressive changes.
For more information on what we do, please find us on:
