June 11, 2018 - June 22, 2018

Canadian School of Peacebuilding

We would like to invite you to join us at the 10th annual Canadian School of Peacebuilding (CSOP), which will be held June 11-15 and 18-22, 2018, in Winnipeg, Canada. Registration is now available online or using our PDF forms at

We welcome anyone who is interested in growing as a peacebuilder – local and international, young and old, students, practioners and those brand-new to peacebuilding.

As one CSOP participant has said, “CSOP is an incredible opportunity to learn across faith traditions, cultural understandings, and rural and urban settings. Here, the world comes alive in the classroom, and one is inspired to live differently even after stepping foot out of the classroom.”
