Founded in 2008, the Ottawa Peace Assembly (OPA) is a city-wide coalition of student, labour, faith, peace, student, environmental and community groups opposed to Canada’s new militarism and complicity in the so-called “war on terrorism”.
Through the Canadian Peace Alliance, we work with other peace organizations across the country to build a strong, broad-based voice for peace and justice.
Our mandate is simple: we oppose war and occupation. We oppose Islamophobia, anti-Arab bigotry, anti-Semitism, and all forms of racism. And we support civil liberties to defend freedom of expression and assembly.
