The threats to democracy are serious and the Parliamentary Centre needs your support.

Russia’s illegal attack on Ukraine and its democracy, increased authoritarianism, corruption, the rise of populism, misinformation and erosion of trust in democracy call us to action like never before.

Canada has committed to placing support for democracy at the core of Canada’s foreign and development policy and to expanding Canadian expertise to provide it.  The G7 has also pledged to defend democracy where it is threatened.

The Parliamentary Centre is Canada’s global leader for democracy. We are the oldest and last remaining non-profit, non-governmental, non-partisan organization in Canada exclusively committed to inclusive democracy support.  Over the past 50 years, we have maintained strong relations with our parliament, establishing our world-class experience and vital networks in over 70 countries worldwide.

We receive no institutional funding. Your support will ensure that the Parliamentary Centre can continue to implement new programming to defend democracy against today’s challenges.

This includes supporting MPs in Ukraine to continue the work of parliament despite Russia’s illegal invasion, assisting elected officials in Myanmar in pushing back against a brutal military government, ensuring parliaments in Ghana and Togo hear the perspectives of grass-roots women’s groups and supporting women and youth in Sudan to regain the path to democracy.  These brave individuals are essential reminders of why democracy matters today more than ever before. They present an unprecedented opportunity for Canadian and global leadership to defend and renew democracy and support those working to build it.

Please join parliamentarians, members of the diplomatic corps, government officials and the private sector on Tuesday, September 20.
