Since 2013, CAP Canada has been working hard to provide hope and support for those struggling with debt. In 2016 we launched CAP Job Clubs – a group service designed to help people back into employment – with fantastic results. Year after year we’ve reached more people, provided more support, and changed more lives.
In short, we are Christians Against Poverty. We are passionate about releasing people from a life sentence of poverty, debt, unemployment, and struggle. Working with local churches, we bring hope, good news, and freedom to Canadians.
Christians Against Poverty Canada (CAP) was founded by John Kirkby in Bradford, UK in 1996. In the twenty-plus years since then, CAP has expanded to Australia and New Zealand, and reached Canada in 2013. You can read all about John’s incredible story, and the early days of Christians Against Poverty in Nevertheless – a book that chronicles those days from John’s personal journals.
