Justice and Peace

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) promotes justice and peace through its Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace. The mandate of this Commission is to convey the teachings of Scripture and of Catholic social doctrine in the Canadian context, to shed greater light on social issues and to provide instruction on how Catholics may respond to the challenges of our times. On occasion, the CCCB, through the Commission for Justice and Peace or its other bodies, also addresses the highest levels of leadership both in Canada and abroad, advocating directly for the redress of injustice, the relief of suffering, the advancement of peace and security, the protection of religious freedom and of other fundamental human rights.
