PIC campaigns to make family planning an integral, significant part of Canadian aid, because all women deserve access to safe, affordable contraception.

It's easy to make a difference.

PIC in Action

Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot
Copies of Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot have been presented at population-related gatherings, and by Vice President/Executive Director Clifford Garrard to Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, the Honourable Catherine McKenna.

PIC hopes soon to gift additional copies to selected Government ministers and other federal party leaders, including the Prime Minister.

PIC is the voice of Canadians concerned with overpopulation and its negative human and environmental impact. Founded in 1992, it campaigns to increase support for reproductive health and education, especially for women and girls, and for universal, voluntary access to family planning which the UN notes, "...could bring more benefits to more people at less cost than any other single technology available to the human race." 

Fact: Continued global population growth, together with overconsumption, is incompatible with a healthy, sustainable future for humanity and the environment.
