LifeCanada is a national association of educational pro-life groups who promote and protect the value of human life.

Our mandate is to create resources, training, and programming for our member groups. We strive to inspire individuals to see the true value of human life and overcome hardship in ways that do not violate the rights and dignity of others.

Through our innovative use of multi-media campaigns, we train and support member groups and hundreds of dedicated pro-lifers in five principal areas:

  • Programs
  • National Campaigns
  • Training & Conferences
  • National Polling
  • Resources
