VISION: To bring humanity one step closer to peace and social justice by eliminating the impacts of indiscriminate weapons and restoring the rights and dignity of affected individuals and communities.
Mines Action Canada (MAC) is an international leader working to eliminate the serious humanitarian, environmental and development consequences of indiscriminate weapons.
We are committed global advocates working to alleviate the impact that these weapons have on the rights, dignity and well being of civilian populations. We do this by engaging the public; supporting domestic and international partners; researching and monitoring the performance and compliance levels of disarmament and humanitarian laws; and by developing and disseminating resources.
When you support Mines Action Canada, you are supporting initiatives that are an imperative component to making positive global change for hundreds of thousands of women, men and children. MAC is successfully achieving these goals by implementing our core values of peace, social justice, partnership, solidarity, cooperation, and innovation.
The human-made disaster caused by these weapons is solvable in our lifetime. Please, take the next steps today:

Mines Action Canada is located in Ottawa which is on the unceded territory of the Algonquin people. They have cared for this land for generations and when Europeans first arrived, they offered assistance, sharing knowledge and skills, to help the newcomers live on new and unfamiliar land.
Mines Action Canada strives to take those ideas of stewardship of the land and of offering assistance to help all live well into our work on a daily basis. We are mindful of broken covenants and we seek to live in respect, peace and right relations with the indigenous peoples of Turtle Island as we reside and work upon unsurrendered Algonquin territory.
