Event description

Description

The International Cooperation sector in Canada has been riding a wave of commitments and movement towards gender equality, climate action and sustainable development. Canada's Feminist International Assistance Policy (FIAP), recently announced Equality Fund, Thrive Agenda, the 2030 Agenda National Strategy and Women Deliver Conference have focused resources and opportunities to advance sustainable development action across sectors locally and globally. This fall, OCIC’s 31st Annual General Meeting & Symposium will present a unique opportunity to be part of the conversation and effort.

Join us September 18-19, 2019 in downtown Toronto to meet with OCIC members, partners and colleagues from civil society organizations, academia, government and community groups to share, learn, influence and inspire transformative, sustainable development.
