- To facilitate the sharing of ideas, experience and resources among organizations and the Canadian public on South Asian development;
- To mobilize Canadian support for and participation in the development programs of SAP International member organizations and their partners;
- To manage development programs within its mandate and the common interest of its members.
Donate to SAP Canada via Canada Helps
Due to lack of funding, SAP Canada closed its office and ceased active programming in May 2011. The organization maintains its contacts with former program partners, participates in relevant meetings and dialogue about the South Asia region and is determining whether potential funding sources exist or if it should dissolve.
SAP Canada would like to thankfully acknowledge the Canadian Partnership Branch of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) for their past financial support of SAP Canada programming.
