About Us

Founded in 1945 with the creation of the CARE Package℠ CARE is a global confederation working to save lives, fight poverty and achieve social justice in the world by investing in women and girls and advancing their leadership. We work alongside communities and with partners to understand the root causes of poverty and find innovative, locally-led solutions.

CARE Canada is headquartered in Ottawa with staff based across the country and around the globe. We work closely with the Government of Canada and other Canadian and global partners and with incredible women’s rights organizations in the countries where our projects take place.

Join us in investing in women and advancing their leadership to create a more equal world!
