Aga Khan Foundation Canada {"AKFC"}, incorporated on July 3, 1980, is a non-profit international development agency working in Asia and Africa to find sustainable solutions to the complex problems causing global poverty. AKFC's work covers two core lines of activity: programming related to international development, and the acquisition and development of properties used for charitable purposes. Both of these areas are supported by separate funding streams. It also offers an International Fellowship Program for Young Canadians and other programs enabling Canadians to serve in the developming world, and a robust public engagement and professional learning program to raise awareness and encourage discussion about Canada's role in an interdependent world.

AKFC's current portfolio for international development projects includes initiatives on agriculture and food security, economic inclusion, education, health and nutrition, early childhood development, and civil society strengthening in several countries in Asia and Africa.
