An unprecedented number of Canadian and international organizations will release details of petitions and statements signed by millions of citizens around the world in the lead-up to the G8/G20 Summits in Canada. The collected voices call on world leaders to invest in the future now by keeping their promises on poverty, climate change and economic reform.

The handover is led by the "AT THE TABLE" coalition, the largest grouping of NGOs, faith-based groups and labour unions in Canada. As world leaders assemble in Canada, senior representatives from a cross-section of our organizations outline their expectations for the Summit and react to the latest developments as the Summit gets underway.
