Save the Children was established in the United Kingdom in 1919 to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as provide emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts. The organization promotes policy changes to gain more rights for young people, especially by enforcing the UN Declaration of the Rights of the child. Created in 1921 in Vancouver, Save the Children Canada (Save Canada) was one of the first to establish itself as an affiliated member of the original organization. Today, Save Canada employs 65 staff and operates out of its offices in Toronto, with some staff working remotely in other parts of Canada and globally. Save Canada reports revenues of $50 million with approximately 66% attained through government funding from Global Affairs Canada and international grants and 26% from fundraising and contributions.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is Save the Children Canada’s visionary and leader, interpreting and implementing all aspects of its mission and responsible for establishing Save Canada’s strategy, consistent with SCI’s global strategies and priorities.
