On October 18-19, 2011, the CCIC Americas Policy Group (APG) will host one of its tri-annual meetings. The event will take place in Ottawa and will gather members from across the country. Participants will learn about the new political context and discuss opportunities and challenges for CSO advocacy. They will also use the meeting to establish joint action plans on APG themes such as trade, human rights and democracy. For more information, please contact APG coordinator Brittany Lambert.
