The Canadian Peacebuilding Coordinating Committee (CPCC), is a network of Canadian non-governmental organizations and institutions, academics and other individuals from a wide range of sectors, including humanitarian assistance, development, peacekeeing training, experts’ roster, conflict resolution, governance, peace, faith communities, and human rights. CPCC has been working since 1994 to formulate policy and operational directions for Canadian NGOs involved in peacebuilding, in collaboration with other relevant actors. The network is engaged in processes of dialogue with government and a broad range of individuals and civil society organizations to articulate Canadian directions in the area of peacebuilding, and to strengthen civil society input into peacebuilding policy and program development. CPCC Working Groups bring together those interested in particular thematic areas. Current Working Groups are Small Arms, Children and Armed Conflict, Gender and Peacebuilding, Conflict Prevention and Peace Operations. CPCC also participates in the Canadian Conflict Prevention Initiative and acts as the North America regional initiator in the Global partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC). CPCC activities and the operation of CPCC secretariat are funded by Foreign Affairs Canada, the Canadian International Development Agency and through the membership fees and other contributions of member organizations and individuals.
