Rotarians and clubs have been involved with the eradication of Landmines since the passing of The Ottawa Treaty in 1997. The effort to establish an international treaty banning the use, sale and manufacture of landmines was led by then Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Lloyd Axworthy. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts and still serves as the Canadian Landmine Foundation’s Honourary Chair.

In 1999 the Canadian Landmine Foundation was formed with backing from the federal government’s $100 million Canadian Landmine Fund. Its task was to involve Canadians in mine action by raising awareness and funds for demining and victim assistance. Today the Foundation works to raise awareness at home and support mine action in Cambodia through partnerships with local organizations.

Our 2019 Distinguished Guest Speaker is John English, one of the creators of the Ottawa Treaty, signed by over 160 countries .

Perhaps a group of Rotarians from your Club may wish to take part . We hope to see you there.

Rotarians and Rotary Clubs have been two the largest financial contributors to the Canadian Landmine Foundation. 122 Clubs in 18 Districts coast to coast have contributed more than $260,000 to Canadian Landmine Foundation programs over the years. These funds went to projects that cleared mines and assisted survivors in places like Bosnia, Mozambique, Afghanistan and Cambodia. At the height of the Night of 1000 Dinners campaign, over 90% of all Rotary Districts in Canada were holding N1KD events!
