A Plan for change

At Plan International Canada, our mission is clear: We believe in a just world for all. A world where children's rights are respected and girls are equal.

We're part of a global organization that works with children, families and communities around the world to remove barriers, so everyone has a fair chance at a good life. Isn't that what we all want?

Since Plan International was launched 85 years ago, our goal has always been to ensure every child is healthy, educated, protected, valued, respected and heard. Girls especially are denied their rights and that's wrong. If we achieve equality for girls, we advance all children's rights.

It's time to create a world where every child can learn, lead, decide and thrive. Want to join us in making that happen?


Annual Report 2022
