Join a thriving community of Ontarians working for universal sustainable development.
Horizons of Friendship (Horizons) is a non-profit international development organization founded in 1973 and based in the town of Cobourg, Ontario. With over 48 years of continuous operation, Horizons has evolved from providing humanitarian aid to long-term community-based development addressing the root causes of poverty and injustice in Mesoamerica (Central America and Mexico).
Horizons works by developing medium- and long‐term partnerships with Central American and Mexican partner organizations, and providing education, training and resources to support local initiatives that further our shared community development goals. Horizons’ consistent presence has been made possible through strong and enduring local partnerships, which have enabled sustained impacts at local, provincial, national and regional levels. To date, we have implemented 1,400 projects with more than 130 organizations in Mesoamerica, including several multi-year programs funded by Global Affairs Canada. In Canada, Horizons’ Migrant Worker Outreach Program seeks to bridge the gap between migrant workers and community services. We partner with a variety of community organizations to provide Migrant Workers health, legal, and social services. We also seek to raise awareness of global issues and work with Canadian organizations at the local and national levels to bring about positive and lasting change.
