About Us


We envision a world, free from poverty.

For more than two decades, our unwavering mission has been focused on providing a dignified way out of poverty’s grip. Since 1997, we’ve been committed to sustainable solutions that uplift people worldwide and enable them to work their way out of poverty.

We’re not just about statistics; we’re about stories of transformation. With your partnership, we’ve been able to expand and introduce innovative programs that truly break the cycle of poverty for individuals once trapped in ultra-poverty.

Picture this: small business owners growing their enterprises, parents providing for their families, communities thriving with new job opportunities, and futures secured through financial safety nets. The generosity of Canadian donors, coupled with robust partnerships, paves the way for this to happen.

Opportunity International Canada is proud to be part of a global network. We work alongside Supporting Members in five countries and collaborate with Implementing Partners in 33 nations worldwide.
