ACGC is a member of the following networks


Inter-Council Network

The Inter-Council Network (ICN) is a coalition of the eight Provincial and Regional Councils for International Cooperation. These member-based Councils are committed to global social justice and social change, and represent nearly 400 diverse civil society organizations (CSOs) from across Canada. The ICN provides a national forum in which the Councils collaborate for improved effectiveness and identify common priorities for collective action. Rooted in communities across Canada, we are leaders in public engagement at a local and regional level and are recognized for bringing regional knowledge and priorities to the national level.

Executive directors of the eight councils meet on a regular basis to share information and coordinate national programs, policies and actions. ICN is housed at the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation.    For more information, contact the National Coordinator at Visit the ICN Website to Learn More.

ACGC currently operates the Spur Change program on behalf of the ICN.  To learn more, visit the Spur Change website.
