CPJ’s 2023 Annual Report/2024 Budget

The proposed 2024 budget, complete with comparative figures for 2023 and the Treasurer’s report, is available on the back page of CPJ’s 2023 Annual Report.

Thanks to the wonderful response to our 60 by 60 campaign in celebration of CPJ’s 60th anniversary, we experienced a healthy year of recovery.

However, CPJ continues to experience significant financial strain following the global pandemic and the subsequent fear of recession. CPJ remains eager to restore our team to pre-pandemic levels. To make this possible, we rely on the ongoing, generous support of our members. CPJ remains committed to strategically investing in our campaigns and resources, maximizing the impact of every donation.

CPJ’s growing annual national campaigns continue to gather momentum for progressive public policy solutions to tackle the climate crisis, immigration, and poverty in Canada. This year, we are reaching out to new and diverse communities nationwide, encouraging their participation in the quest for public justice. CPJ is dedicated to listening, learning, and evolving. Your ongoing support allows us to confidently anticipate the far-reaching effects our advocacy will have on Canada’s public policies for many more years to come.
