The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund has been connecting Anglicans in Canada to people in need since 1958. It is named for the Primate, the head of the Anglican Church in Canada. Read more about our history, our volunteers and our governance structures here.
The P stands for Primate (the head of the Anglican Church of Canada) but it also stands for our partners in Canada and around the world, people-centred development and for the parish volunteers who engage Canadians with our partners’ work. Programs focus areas include Preventive Health, Food Security, Empowering Women, Indigenous Programs, Humanitarian Response and Accompanying Refugees.
The Fundraising and Supporter Relations team supports a dedicated network of volunteers across Canada through communications, promotional and educational resources and the youth council. We strive to make PWRDF part of the outreach and social justice ministry of every parish.
The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund offices are located on the third floor of Anglican Church House in downtown Toronto.
