November 2018 Peacebus update:

CISV Canada will be taking a year off from running the Peacebus programme; therefore there will not be a Summer 2019 Peacebus.

At the Quarterly Board Meeting in (September 2018), the Board voted to take a break for the 2019 programme year, and to complete an evaluation with recommendations for the programme in 2020 and beyond.  At the National Board Meeting (November 12, 2018), the Board approved the 3.1 – Appendix 1 – ToR for Peace Bus Evaluation Working Group[1](PBEWG).

The PBEWG is tasked to evaluate the Peace Bus programme with reference to CISV’s strategic goals, and make recommendations for a sustainable model to support the Peace Bus programme.

We are calling upon interested members to take part in the working group to contribute to the evaluation process.


The CISV Peace Bus project consists of two 39 day cross-Canada journeys in a 15 passenger van for 12 delegates (15-18 yrs), 1 junior leader (19+) and two leaders. During the trip, the group volunteers in communities, visits local CISV chapters, engages in educational projects, participates in team building activities and learns about Canada, all while lodging at CISV family homes and camping in breathtaking national parks.
