|Mandat :||Our vision is to bring humanity one step closer to peace and social justice by eliminating the impacts of victim-activated weapons and restoring the rights and dignity of affected individuals and communities.
Mines Action Canada (MAC), a coalition of Canadian non-governmental organizations, is an international leader working to eliminate the serious humanitarian, environmental and development consequences of landmines and other explosive remnants of war (ERW). The human-made disaster caused by these weapons is solvable in our lifetime. We exist to advocate for alleviation of the impact of these weapons on the rights, dignity and well-being of civilian populations. We do this by engaging the Canadian public; building our partners' capacity domestically and internationally; researching and monitoring the performance and compliance levels of disarmament and humanitarian laws, treaties and norms; and developing and disseminating resources. MAC seeks to create an enabling environment to achieve its goals based upon the core values of peace, social justice, partnership, solidarity, cooperation, and innovation.
