P.E.A.C.E Development Initiative

We effectively deliver our P.E.A.C.E. develop initiatives, addressing policies that are most important to the African Canadian & Canadian community. We deliver targeted programmes and projects through our 5 P.E.A.C.E. development committees that provide direct solutions and resolve to address and fix community issues, thereby leading to improve the quality of life of individuals and families, so we may all focus more directly on the development of productive community businesses and the creation of jobs

How Is National Policy Alliance Canada Unique?

Our fundamental commitment is to organizational partnerships. When you put your piece forward, we stand behind you for your support. You will lead. But not alone. In time, the idea you thought no one cared about could take flight with the exposure and support it will receive from NPA Canada and NPA United States, here in Canada; in the US and in time, internationally. In addition, our older sister, the United States and our younger siblings, in Africa, the Caribbean and elsewhere will continue to benefit from the work that preceded them, and will have the comfort in knowledge that foundation was made for them, and is therefore likely beneficial for them.
