Vision

The Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement (CPA) aspires to attract peace innovators; to be a state of the art academic hub that incubates and advances collaborative, inter-disciplinary, multi-sector peacemaking.

Mission

The CPA advances expansive and innovative understandings and practices of peace locally and globally by promoting collaboration among its peace partners in ways that seek wisdom, nurture faith and serve church and society.

Our three programs

  1. The Grebel Gallery encourages mutual learning and shared action by illustrating the integration of art, community and peacebuilding.
  2. The Epp Peace Incubator program offers peace-related initiatives an opportunity to put wheels to their idea.  
  3. Core Collaborators advance their work by engaging in collaborative research projects and community engagement opportunities.
