Are you a Canadian who wants to  address issues of women, peace and security, end sexual violence in conflict, and organize with like-minded people? If your answer is yes, then please join us!

The Women, Peace and Security Network – Canada (WPSN-C) is a network of over 40 organizations and individuals committed to addressing issues of women, peace and security. The network monitors the efforts of the Government of Canada to implement and support the United Nation’s Security Council Resolutions on women, peace and security, and provides a forum for exchange and action by Canadian civil society.

Over the next two weeks, we’re carrying out a membership drive in order to expand the network and gain more national representation. Canadian individuals and organizations are welcome to join by contact us at wpsncanada@gmail.com or through the Become a Member page.

Throughout the membership drive we’ll publish a series of “Member Spotlight” blog posts highlighting the diverse work and expertise of our current members, so please check our blog, Facebook page and Twitter feed regularly!

We have an exciting year ahead, with workshops, meetings, film screenings and other events in the works for May (details will be posted on our Upcoming Events page as they’re finalized). We’ll also be supporting the Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict ahead of the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in June.

We hope you will join us in these efforts and add your voice the chorus of Canadians calling for women’s greater participation in peace and security efforts.
