Cooperation Canada employs diverse strategies to influence decision-makers and advocate on the sector’s behalf. These include the development of sector-wide campaigns in partnership with members, support for member campaigns and those of global allies, petitions, open letters, parliamentary submissions and testimonies, engagement with parliamentarians (including through Cooperation Canada’s annual “Hill Day” during International Development Week), targeted efforts to engage senior officials across relevant Government of Canada departments and public engagement.
