Mines Action Canada (MAC)

Mines Action Canada (MAC), a coalition of Canadian non-governmental organizations, is an international leader working to eliminate the serious humanitarian, environmental, and developmental consequences of landmines, cluster munitions, and explosive remnants of war (ERW). MAC believes that the human-made disaster caused by these weapons is solvable in our lifetime. MAC exists to advocate for alleviation of the impact of these weapons on the rights, dignity, and well-being of civilian populations. It does this by engaging the Canadian public; building its partners' capacity domestically and internationally; researching and monitoring the performance and compliance levels of disarmament and humanitarian laws, treaties, and norms; and by developing and disseminating resources.

We supported the production of the "Help Make History Happen! Action Toolkit to Ban Cluster Bombs." The Action Toolkit is designed to be a "one-stop shop" compilation of campaign tools and information, compiled in one easy-to-use and easy-to-adapt format that meets the specific needs of campaigners in Canada and around the world. It is available on CD-ROM and downloadable on MAC's website. The Toolkit is available in English and French.
