About Common Frontiers

We are a national working group with over two decades of experience and credibility in international solidarity. Composed of faith-based, labour, and social justice organizations focused on the Americas, we are uniquely positioned in Canada to provide important analysis, and solidarity, inside and outside the country

We do this through a combination of research, analysis, and action, in cooperation with labour, human rights, environmental, church, development, and economic and social justice organizations

Our guiding principles are International solidarity, democratic freedoms, respect for human rights, the promotion of labour rights, and strong public services.

Common Frontiers grew out of the experience gained by Canadian organizations confronting the Free Trade agenda and the recognition that cooperation must extend across sectors nationally and also across borders.
