About Oxfam Quebec:
Oxfam-Québec (OXQ), a member of the international Oxfam confederation, is a non-governmental organization dedicated to implementing sustainable solutions to poverty and injustice around the world. OXQ was founded in 1973 as an independent organization from Oxfam Canada, with the mandate of raising French speakers’ awareness about the situation in developing countries. In 2000, OXQ also acquired an affiliate, CLUB 2/3, which is an international cooperation organization known for working for and with young people, both in Quebec and around the world. OXQ has five strategic objectives: economic justice, essential services, rights in crisis, gender justice and youth empowerment. Its ultimate vision is a just world without poverty.
In F2012, OXQ implemented over 200 projects in 23 countries, throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Programs focus on three key areas: humanitarian assistance, sustainable development and public engagement, and include both immediate emergency relief programs as well as long-term development initiatives. In F2012, OXQ allocated $40.2m to programs in these areas, of which the largest recipients were Haiti ($14.0m), the Democratic Republic of Congo ($4.1m), Canada ($3.6m) and Honduras ($2.9m).
In F2012, OXQ’s administrative costs were 10% of total revenues. F2012 donations include $10.7m in international donations and $6.8m in Canadian donations. Fundraising costs were 21% of Canadian donations. In F2012, OXQ had funding reserves of $3.2m, which cover only 8% of annual program costs. However, this program cost coverage is understated, as the majority of OXQ’s programs are directly funded by annual CIDA funding.
