Humanity & Inclusion (HI) is an international cooperation organization that intervenes in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. Working alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, it acts and speaks out to meet their basic needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights. Each year, nearly 2 million people benefit from the organization’s actions around the world, implemented by more than 3,000 employees, for a global budget of more than $250 million. In 1997, Humanity & Inclusion shared the Nobel Peace Prize for its work against anti-personnel mines.
As a member of the Humanity & Inclusion Federation, the Canadian National Association (HI Canada) relies on an international operational platform to mobilize Canadians to support the world’s most disadvantaged and discriminated populations.
The Federation implements the common social missions of the network, leads the international multi-year strategy and defines the policies and operating rules of the entire network. The national chapters mobilize the resources necessary for the implementation of the social missions, develop the image and reputation of HI, promote the values and positioning of the federal network and participate in the governance bodies of the Federation in their capacity as members.
This interdependence between the Federation and the national chapter is based in particular on the dual hierarchical relationship of the Canada Directorate with the President of the national association and the Executive Director of the Federation.

After 17 years of presence in Canada, Humanity & Inclusion has succeeded in developing a coherent and effective program of institutional partnerships and has gained a good reputation within the humanitarian sector (ministries, NGOs, coalitions and sectoral associations).
Today, Humanity & Inclusion aims to position itself in the Canadian philanthropic community and market. Hence, the new management will be responsible for direct philanthropic growth and development in a manner that intensifies the Canadian participation in the large international NGO that is HI – allowing it to accompany even more beneficiaries and strengthen its reputation in Canada.
Humanity & Inclusion Canada’s new management team will be responsible for taking the organization to the next level, to fully position it as a key Canadian humanitarian partner, benefiting from the constant support of its supporters in service of the most vulnerable.
