We work in countries around the world where needs are greatest

PWRDF receives funding from Anglicans across Canada as well as non-Anglicans, Global Affairs Canada and other institutional donors. Our volunteers promote PWRDF programs in churches and communities, to raise money and awareness about the needs of vulnerable people around the world. Our staff in Toronto are careful stewards of these funds and work to ensure that development and relief programs are as efficient and effective as possible. PWRDF is committed to working in diverse communities and does not proselytize in its work.

Vision Statement

Working towards a truly just, healthy and peaceful world.

What we do

The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund is the Anglican Church of Canada’s agency for sustainable development and relief. Since 1958, we have worked hand-in-hand with trusted partners in Canada and around the world on a journey of positive change. Together, we are improving health, food security and livelihoods where needs are greatest.

PWRDF works with a vast network of volunteers who share our success stories with Anglicans in the pews and beyond, stirring their hearts to pray and become engaged in the work of supporting vulnerable people.
