2018 National Conference—Grassroots to Global: A Movement for Change

 Conference AgendaConfirmed Speakers | Register 

The RESULTS Canada National Conference is a biennial event that brings together Canadians, global experts, seasoned advocates and key decision-makers to learn, inspire and empower participants to create a more just world.

In the last two decades, there has been incredible progress in reducing extreme poverty around the world. We have seen child mortality rates cut almost in half, more children attending school and more women safely experiencing childbirth. Yet, there is still much work left to do. Malnutrition is still responsible for almost half of all deaths of children under five, girls continue to access schooling at a lower rate than their male peers and tuberculosis continues to be the leading infectious killer worldwide.

In 2015, world leaders set out a blueprint for ending poverty and inequity with the Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals are ambitious and will require significant investments to be realized. Canada is in a position to show real leadership in the fight against poverty, yet investments in international assistance have plateaued. The world needs more Canada and it is time to raise our voices and speak out.
