An Investment in Healing & Reconciliation 

Your generous donation can make this Canadian Historic Moment Possible


Traditionally there are a number of sources of funding for papal visits. These include the participation and support of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops(CCCB), local dioceses from across Canada, donations or in-kind contributions from individuals and corporations, as well as significant value in-kind contributions from various levels of government. An investment in the Papal Visit to Canada is an investment in healing and reconciliation, because so many indigenous peoples have deemed it to be an essential step on that path. That said, the $30 million commitment recently announced by the CCCB (Indigenous Reconciliation Fund) will support Indigenous healing and reconciliation initiatives. None of these funds will be allocated to cover the expenses of the Papal Visit to Canada.


We are seeking to raise a National Target of $15M+ 

This is a preliminary estimate, which will be further refined as we develop specific plans for the visit now that it has been confirmed by the Vatican.

THE NATIONAL TARGET will cover the costs for lodging and event security for participants; event production including staging, lighting, sound system, media centre, screens, and other production costs; event logistics including toilets, power, internet, communication equipment for volunteers, mobility for short transport for Elders or Survivors; health and welfare including mental health support for Indigenous survivors, and requirements not covered by others.


You can either donate directly to your Diocese or Archdiocese; or Donation cheques can be made payable to: 

Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops or CONCACAN INC. – 
Attention: Paul Bowman, Director of Administration. 
Mailing address: 2500 Don Reid Dr., Ottawa, ON K1H 2J2, Canada 
All cash donations are eligible for a tax receipt.
