Canadian Jesuits International engages with parishes, socio-civic organizations and a broader Canadian audience across the country to bring awareness to the social justice work being done by our Jesuit partners in the Global South. We do this through activities such as public speaking events, webinars and meetings with other social justice and faith organizations.
