Our mission
ADRA Canada works with people in poverty and distress to create just and positive change through empowering partnerships and responsible action.
How we serve
ADRA Canada is a reputable and widespread development and relief agency. Overseas, ADRA invests in the potential of communities in poverty in ways that ensure they have access to appropriate quality and quantity of food, opportunities for livelihoods to meet their family’s needs, primary health training and services, as well as basic education opportunities to help them reach their full potential.  
ADRA Canada also provides funding to Seventh-day Adventist churches across Canada who implement projects to help meet the needs of Canadians. These projects assist Canadians in ways such as clothing, community gardens, First Nations assistance, Bags of Love for children removed from homes in crises, and food assistance for families, the homeless and new immigrants. ADRA Canada also provides disaster response assistance within Canada, in partnership with the local Seventh-day Adventist Conference.
ADRA Canada is part of the global ADRA network, the worldwide humanitarian arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Church with a presence in more than 130 countries. ADRA recognizes the dignity that is inherent in each person and is committed to improving the quality of human life.  It serves people without regard to their ethnic, political, or religious association. It helps those in need, especially those most vulnerable, such as women and children. ADRA was granted General Consultative Status by the United Nations in 1997.
