CCIC announces new President-CEO Nicolas Moyer
Former Executive Director of the Humanitarian Coalition to lead the Canadian Council for International Co-operation in its 50th year



The Board of Directors of the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC) is delighted to announce the appointment of Nicolas Moyer as the new President-CEO in CCIC’s 50th year as Canada’s independent national voice for international development.


“Nicolas brings the passion and clear ability to work with a diverse national membership in a thoughtful and collective fashion. Those of us who have had the pleasure of working with Nicolas in the past can attest to his abilities in this area. I have no doubt that CCIC will be in good hands moving forward.”
Gillian Barth, Chair of the Board of CCIC


As the former Executive Director of the Humanitarian Coalition, Nicolas is passionate about humanitarian and development policy, advocacy, and government relations. Driven by a commitment to social justice, he began his career in international development in Ethiopia. He has founded and led organizations, launched dozens of national multi-platform fundraising and communications campaigns and raised tens of millions of dollars to assist survivors of humanitarian disasters. In 2016, he was named as a top Forty Under 40 recipient by the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce and the Ottawa Business Journal.

Nicolas will be replacing Julia Sánchez in this role, which she has held for seven years since August 2011. Julia announced to the Board her intention to leave the position in December 2017, which allowed for ample time to find her replacement and ensure a smooth and sound transition. Julia will continue to lead the team until Nicolas joins in August 2018.


“I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to follow in Julia’s footsteps and to work with CCIC members to advance our shared objectives. It’s a beautiful challenge, with no end of opportunity. My belief in the potential of cross-agency or cross-sector collaboration is deeply rooted. Together I believe we can better tackle the challenges ahead for our sector and create new opportunities to expand our capacity to secure brighter futures for those we seek to help around the globe.”
