About Us...

The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund is the Canadian Anglican agency for development, relief, refugees, and justice. 

PWRDF is active in approximately 30 countries, with partners drawn from Anglican churches, ecumenical organizations, and community-based groups. PWRDF supports people-centred development that improves the quality of daily life for vulnerable populations, promotes self-reliance, and addresses root causes of poverty and injustice.

Our work is bound together in three strategic themes:

  • Weaving a Culture of Peace with Justice
  • Building a Moral Economy and
  • Accompanying Communities in Crisis.

PWRDF strives to be a part of the outreach ministry of every Canadian Anglican parish and an expression for all Anglicans of their baptismal covenant to strive for justice and peace and to respect the dignity of every human being.

The national PWRDF has additional materials and information available here

We serve as an educational resource to parishes by holding monthly information meetings (see below), publishing a quarterly newsletter and assisting parish representatives in educating their parishes about PWRDF. Have questions or interested in becoming involved? Write the Chairperson, Ann Cumyn at acumyn@sympatico.ca or Roslyn Macgregor roslyn.macgregor@gmail.com. The committee is looking for new members to join the team.

Meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of the month, Sept – June at noon in Fulford Hall at Cathedral Place, 1444 Union, Montreal, unless otherwise noted.

Water Walk 2017

Each year, we focus on a project for which we raise both awareness – and funds! This year, we decided to concentrate our efforts on Just Generation’s initiative Right to Water. (Just Generation is the youth wing of PWRDF - http://www.justgeneration.ca) In backing this youth enterprise we are honouring the 2020 Vision Plan, the Marks of Mission and are positioning ourselves in “right relationship” with the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Here are some images from the Water Walk. Thanks to Janet Best for capturing these photos!
