The “Inspiring Action for Global Citizenship” Program aims to promote awareness of global issues among the Canadian public and relevant stakeholders across Canada. The Program is implemented by eight provincial and regional councils for international cooperation in their respective province or region. Through this project, the Association québécoise des organismes de coopération internationale (AQOCI) seeks to increase the engagement of both the public and the stakeholders in Quebec. More specifically, it aims to involve more Quebecers, in particular youth, in international development by increasing their support for and participation in Canada's efforts to eradicate poverty in the world. This translates into a variety of integrated communication activities, such as the celebration of International Development Week, the organization of public information sessions and the development of publications. The project also seeks to improve the capacity of Quebec civil society organizations working in international development to maximize their results, though diverse knowledge-sharing initiatives, including workshops, webinars and trainings.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) increased engagement of Canadians, especially youth, in international development and key global issues; and (2) increased effectiveness of Canadian development partners to deliver innovative, inclusive programming that advances gender equality.
