About Grassroots Activism

ARPA Canada is a grassroots organization. Our job is not to do the work so you don’t have to. Rather our job is to produce material, and ideas and action items so that you, average Canadians get excited about standing up for the truth, and for the vulnerable in our society.

What Can I Do?

  1. Build a relationship with your representatives. Start by sending your MP a thank you note for their service. Then try getting a meeting or coffee. Keep the conversation going by email or phone call. Make it a goal to meet with your MP and MLA or MPP once a year.
  2. Be a leader for political action in your community. As much as possible, try to get your friends and church community in on this. Whether you have a local ARPA in your area or not, we need people who have the heart to call others to action.
  3. Spread the Calls to Action. ARPA Canada sends regular updates and calls to action through our email list, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram feeds. Engage and share!

Most importantly, be encouraged. God is giving us opportunities to shine.

Protect Vulnerable Youth from Gender Ideology in Bill C-16

If passed, this bill will amend the Canadian Human Rights Act to outlaw discrimination on the basis of “gender identity” and “gender expression.”

As Christians we must strive to be fair, honest, and kind in our dealings with our neighbours, employees, customers, and tenants. We can protect people against bullying, harassment, and violence without embedding contentious, unscientific, “progressive” gender ideology in law.

Action Items:

  1. Send one of three EasyMails here:
  2. Read ARPA’s Policy Report on Gender Identity.
  3. Check out our video campaign here.

Promote Best Interests of Children – Share Concerns on Ontario’s Bill 89

This bill will (if passed) replace the Child and Family Services Act, by requiring child protection, foster, adoption service providers, and judges to take into account and respect a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

When it comes to who can foster or adopt children, all parents will not be considered equal under Bill 89. Particularly not those who reject gender ideology.
