Ottawa ceases funding of overseas human-rights group, Michael Valpy, The Globe and Mail, December 3, 2009

The federal government has abruptly terminated funding to Canada’s major faith-based overseas human-rights organization, Kairos, effectively cutting its total budget in half for the next four years unless it finds replacement money.

Ottawa starves climate critics of cash on eve of eco-summit, Allan Woods, The Star, December 3, 2009

KAIROS, a multi-faith group that has received money from the Canadian International Development Agency for more than three decades, was refused its request for $7.1 million over four years this week. A CIDA official told the organization’s director that its programs no longer “fit” with the government agency’s priorities, an official with the aid organization said.

Kairos, an ecumenical social justice group representing 11 different churches and organizations, said the decision by the Canadian International Development Agency will force it to stop operating in troubled areas such as Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, central America and the West Bank. “We are disheartened that this long-standing relationship and decades of support by the Canadian government has ended,” said Mary Corkery, Kairos’ executive director. “Kairos and the millions of Canadians we represent through our member churches and organizations do not understand why these cuts have been made.”
