About Amnesty International - Canadian Section:
Amnesty International - Canadian Section (AIC) is the Canadian arm of Amnesty International, a global movement of over 3 million people in more than 150 countries working to protect and promote human rights. Its mission is to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights, and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated. AIC aims to see a world in which every person enjoys all rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
AIC’s programs include a campaign to end torture, a campaign to protect indigenous peoples in Columbia, and the “Write for Rights” program, whereby activists have written over 2.3 million letters to press governments to respond to high-priority cases concerning human rights. In F2013, AIC spent 36% of its expenditures on international campaigns, 15% on Canadian actions, and 16% on grassroots activism, with the remainder of funds spent on communications and organizational costs.
In F2013, AIC’s administrative costs were 8% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 31% of donations. AIC has funding reserves of $1.5m, which cover 21% of annual program costs.
