Organization Information

Association for Reformed Political Action (ARPA) Canada  
ARPA Canada is a Christian advocacy organization with three main goals: educating and mobilizing Reformed Christians for political action, bringing a Christian perspective of political issues to the public, and bringing a Christian perspective on political issues to politicians at all levels. ARPA employees conduct research on issues; create policy reports, position papers, blogs, brochures, guides, and related material; disseminate these documents to Reformed Christians, the public, and politicians; and host and organize events to bring attention to political issues. While ARPA primarily focuses on a narrow range of issues, it is a non-partisan advocacy organization.
