It's International Development Week.  

Celebrate Feb 5-11 with us. 

Ottawa, February 5, 2017  

Join us this week as we celebrate a uniquely Canadian event called International Development Week (IDW). It's a time to celebrate Canadian contributions to reducing poverty in the developing world.

The theme this year is "Leave no one behind: Canada contributes to global goals!" This puts the spotlight on our collective efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals laid out in the UN's Agenda 2030 .

Watch for our daily dispatches of stories from the field where CCA, the Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF) and our partners on the ground are working hard each day to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

We'll share ways you can learn about the SDGs, how co-operatives are uniquely suited to achieving them, and how you can join in this global effort.

Here is a sneak preview of what's to come:
