Compassion Canada is a Christian organization, committed to being child-focused, Christ-centered and church driven. As such, each employee of Compassion Canada shall:

Agree with Compassion Canada’s core documents, including a Statement of Faith;
Conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at work and outside the workplace;
Participate in regular Staff Gatherings which include spiritual practices like worship, Scripture reading, and prayer;
Pray with staff or supporters when requested or deemed appropriate.


As one of the world’s leading child development organizations, Compassion partners with the local church in 27 countries to end poverty in the lives of children and their families. Today, two million children are discovering lives full of promise and purpose as they develop in all the different aspects of their lives—their minds, bodies and relationships.


If you could sum up our ministry in a phrase, it would be “holistic child development.” This might sound a bit dull, but this concept is key to Compassion’s ministry. It means we don’t simply respond to poverty by handing out food or Bibles. Instead, we seek to develop children in all the different aspects of their lives.


Through Compassion’s programs in partnership with local churches, children are ministered to in every aspect of their lives, receiving:

Age-appropriate Christian teaching and discipleship at a local church;
Formal and non-formal educational opportunities;
Health care, hygiene training and supplementary food;
Personal attention, guidance and love.


For a long time, the focus of helping others has been giving people things. But what Compassion has learned over the years is that things won’t change communities—people will.

Real and lasting change happens when children are developed to become the adults who will create change in their community. In Compassion’s program, children learn they are loved, they begin to develop hope for their future, and they realize that God wants to use them to help others. And these children grow up to be givers and community leaders.


Compassion works exclusively with local churches because they can best understand and respond to the challenges in their communities. They are known and trusted by their neighbours and are able to reach those in the greatest need.
