Aga Khan Foundation Canada is a non-profit, non-denominational development agency that seeks lasting and effective solutions to address the issues of global poverty. Its programs emphasize education, health, rural development and strengthening non-governmental organizations in the poorest countries of Asia and Africa. AKFC is a member of the Aga Khan Development Network, and many of its projects are carried out in partnership with the Canadian government through the Canadian International Development Agency.
In Canada, AKFC implements training and scholarship programs and facilitates links between Canadian institutions and the developing world. Drawing on its national network of volunteers, it promotes public awareness of global development issues through activities including the World Partnership Walk and World Partnership Golf events, which are held annually across Canada.
