Canadian BDS Coalition: Five Years and Counting

LEARN MORE

About BDS

BDS is a strategy that allows people of conscience around the world to play an effective role in the Palestinian struggle for justice. In July 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights.

The Canadian BDS Coalition is comprised of groups in Canada that support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel’s system of settler-colonialism, occupation, and apartheid towards the Palestinian people. These are groups that support the BDS call and have endorsed the Coalition’s Basis of Unity

The Canadian BDS Coalition currently has member groups from across the country, as well as a number of national organizations.
