Canadian Culture of Peace Program is located in Canada and is an incorporated non-profit society under Canadian legislation (in formation).  CCOPP stands for Canadian Culture of Peace Program.

The following pages contain a selection of material concerning peace building which is for information only. Canadian Culture of Peace Program may at any time:

  1. alter the contents of the CCOPP pages; and/or
  2. refer the reader to other sites on the World Wide Web; and/or
  3. remove the CCOPP pages with the intention of ceasing publication of some or all pages either temporarily or permanently.


The reader must be satisfied that he or she may lawfully seek to access the CCOPP pages, read the CCOPP pages and/or act upon the material in the CCOPP pages. CCOPP accepts no responsibility for the decisions made by the reader in respect of these matters. Decisions may need to be reviewed as the contents of the site or local laws change. The disclaimer below is intended to prevent Canadian Culture of Peace Program's Web contents from being mistaken for official documents in the strict legal sense, even while the CCOPP Web is a reliable source of accurate information. E.g., it is not possible for the institution to control all aspects of its presence on the Internet on an accountable basis, as in the case of outside sources linked to our pages

At an Institutional Level, CCOPP has specific goals (eg. to advance a Culture of Peace and Non-violence in Canada) and process.  We are a catalyst and open to everything to promote a Culture of Peace, so we aim to not prejudge anything since we have to potentially work with everyone.  


CCOPP does not send out unsolicited emails (i.e. SPAM).  We have been experiencing a problem with Spammers using email addresses with the CCOPP domain name.  We regret this happening, but find that there is nothing that we can do to stop the abuse.  It appears that anyone can use a fake identification, and readers should be warned accordingly.  If you ever get email from CCOPP and are unsure about it, please contact info[at] 

It is recommended that you read the CCOPP articles when you start your quest for peace knowledge.  "Culture of Peace Education Gaps that Require Filling" (Draft) (in HTML) has a list of courses and readings that may be considered "Required Reading".
