About LIFE Outreach International:

Life Outreach International (LOI) is the Canadian division of Life Outreach International Association of Churches Incorporated. There is no independent website or webpage available for the Canadian operations of Life Outreach International.

The Canadian charity’s T3010 filing with the CRA reports that it produces and distributes religious media in Canada including television and radio programs.

In F2017, Life Outreach International Canada granted $1.4m to other registered Canadian charities. The majority of grants were allocated to Joint Aid Management – Canada ($925k), followed by Living Faith Evangelistic Association ($84k) and Cure International Canada ($68k). Grants from LOI represent 64% of Joint Aid Management – Canada revenue in F2017.

The charity’s international website reports that it encourages the support of missions and relief programs in areas of need around the world. Some of its current outreaches include Water for LIFE which has helped build more than 5,800 water wells around the world, Mission Feeding which provides food to more than 400,000 children in villages around the world, especially across Sub-Saharan Africa, and RescueLIFE which provides education and prevention to children living in villages who are potential targets for human traffickers. However, the Canadian charity’s filing with the CRA indicates that it does not operate outside of Canada, including not operating in the United States.
