March 12, 2020
On March 11, Open Doors Canada was in Ottawa for the 2020 World Watch List Parliamentary Launch. It was an informative and engaging morning. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to present our 2020 World Watch List at parliament.
The launch was attended by Members of Parliament (MP) as well as friends from the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada and Christian Embassy.
We had the representation of three political parties – which ensured that our message to speak up for freedom of religion or belief of Christian minorities around the world would go across the political spectrum.
Let’s pray that parliamentarians will act upon the recommendations of this year’s report to bring about real difference to the lives of Christian minorities.

Thank you to attendees
We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to those Members of Parliament and other honoured guests that attended the launch in Ottawa.
We especially want to thank our gracious hosts, the Hon. John McKay, MP, and Kelly Block, MP. The Parliamentary Launch would not have been possible without his support for Open Doors.
Your Voice Matters
We want to thank our faithful supporters who sent letters to their Members of Parliament, urging them to attend this event. Many of those in attendance were present because they received invitations from our supporters.
If you see your member of parliament on the list of attendees below, consider sending them a note of thanks!
