Some of the things that we are doing:CPJ’s Envisioning Canada without poverty campaign seeks to engage citizens in advocating for a federal poverty reduction strategy. For over a decade CPJ has worked on refugee and immigration policy as part of our commitment to public justice and the biblical call to love our neighbour.For CPJ, our faith calls us beyond apathy or powerlessness. It calls us to a faith that opens us to our common humanity, our calling to love God by loving our neighbour also in our political life together.So together, we have donned the perspective of public justice.
For over 40 years CPJ has been at the forefront of Public Justice issues in Canada. Last year, CPJ moved to Ottawa.As CPJ has focused more and more on federal government policy, and on those policies which cut across and affect all provinces and territories, staff have been travelling increasingly often to Ottawa. This level of presence in Ottawa allowed us to have greater impact and to develop good relationships with government officials and partners. However, it was clear that our work could be enhanced by actually having our offices only streets away from those with whom we were engaging, rather than hours away.
