From May 2-4, 2020, Results Canada will hold its National Conference in Ottawa, ON. The conference brings together volunteer advocates, civil society partners, government decision makers, parliamentarians and special guests from communities across Canada and the world to raise their voices for an end to extreme poverty.

For over 30 years, Results Canada has been a leading voice for a world free of extreme poverty, working strategically, effectively and efficiently on initiatives involving child health and education, global health and nutrition, and improved policies.  Despite our history of progress, we continue to focus ahead to the next big idea, the next opportunity for impact, and the next win for the world.  In May 2020, our National Conference will be a chance to do just that – and we would like you to join us!
