Local Non-Profit Celebrates Peacebuilders from Canada and Abroad

The Canadian Institute for Conflict Resolution celebrates its new graduates into their community and reflects on 30 years of conflict resolution.

(Ottawa, ON) – On November 29th, The Canadian Institute for Conflict Resolution (CICR) will host its annual graduation ceremony at Saint Paul University from 7 pm to 10 pm. More than 50 peacebuilders will receive their certificates that evening, joining the roster of around 1000 graduates who have completed the conflict resolution program in English or French with CICR since 1988.

This event is an opportunity to celebrate CICR’s work and leadership over the last 30 years which includes delivery of more than 25,000 hours in conflict resolution training out of which the equivalent of $2 million was sponsored directly by the institute. The graduation ceremony will include an inspirational speech by special guest and President of the Rideau Institute, Peggy Mason. Mason has worked in peace & security since 1989. Her contributions to the field include: serving as Canada’s Ambassador for Disarmerment with the United Nations, the development of ground-breaking principles and exercises with NATO on disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of former fighters in international settings.

The Executive Director of CICR, Iman Ibrahim commented “It is integral at this time that peacebuilders come together to celebrate their achievements and share their stories. Our hope is that our graduates carry this experience with them as they embark on their own journies in Canada and abroad.”

Since 1988, CICR has been fulfilling its mission to empower and build capacity in individuals, communities and organizations to resolve conflicts peacefully. In Canada, CICR provides conflict resolution training and intervention programs in private and public sectors alike. Internationally, CICR worked in 13 countries, some in partnership with the United Nations to transform communities in post-conflict zones through the community-based conflict resolution approach. CICR has been integral in restoring safe communities through meaningful conversations in Kenya, Uganda, Mali, Rwanda, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sudan, Taiwan, Dominican Republic and more.
