Canadian Aid to Persecuted Christians

supporting persecuted Christians around the world

Please join us in supporting persecuted Christians around the world. Canadian Aid to Persecuted Christians (CAPC) is a Canadian registered not-for-profit organization that funds humanitarian and legal aid to help relieve suffering resulting from atrocities committed against Christian minorities (see How We Help), some of which are chronicled in our Their Stories section. We hope you will consider a contribution of time, expertise, prayer and/or finances (our most urgent need).

Connect with us if you are aware of a situation that might qualify for our assistance or if you wish to participate in our operation.

Keep current with relevant news from the field.

Did you know…

In Canada, we often take for granted our freedoms of faith and association, and we have difficulty conceptualizing the horrors and atrocities carried out daily in many nations around the world.
A recent review by the British Foreign Secretariat found that

  • Christians are the most persecuted religious group
  • severity of persecution is increasing
  • “Christians who are being persecuted are some of the poorest people on the planet”.

Open Doors’ World Watch List (note this link no longer links to a statistical summary) for the period October 2019 – September 2020 reveals an alarming and heart-breaking landscape:

  • 360 million Christians lived in countries where persecution was “significant”
  • 4,761 Christians killed for their faith
  • 4,488 Churches/Christian buildings attacked
  • 4,277 Christians unjustly arrested, detained or imprisoned
  • 1,710 Christians abducted for faith-related reasons
  • On average, every day:
    • 13 Christians are killed for their faith
    • 12 churches/Christian buildings are attacked
    • 12 Christians are unjustly arrested, detained or imprisoned
    • 5 Christians are abducted for faith-related reasons
