The ACTION Canada office is located in Calgary, Alberta. Wayne Whitbourne is the Executive Director of the Canada office. The team in the Calgary office consists of Cassie Salomons (Administrative Assistant), Helen Thompson (Office Manager/Book Keeper), Scott Gillespie (Director of Promotion and Recruitment), as well as Mark and Cheryl Sorell, Helmuth Graewe, and Kimmie Roszmann (ACTION Ventures). The ACTION Canada office has 49 career missionaries placed around the world, as well as 30+ short-term missionaries each year.

While most career missionaries minister overseas, a few minister in Canada. One example is
Wayne and Diane Mac Leod, who live in Nova Scotia. Wayne is an author and Bible teacher. Many of his books have been translated and distributed to pastors around the world. He is now involved with ACTION BookShare and Pastoral Leadership Development ministries.

ACTION Canada partners with many other ministries to work together to further the Kingdom of God. Some of these ministries are: Canadian Council of Christian Charities (Canada), Emmanuel Hospital Association (India), Asian Hope (Cambodia), Christian Growth Ministries (Philippines), and ABBA Ministries (Brazil). 

An example of this is the partnership ACTION has with International Seafarers Ministry, to facilitate the work of Associate Missionaries Hans and Trudy Uittenbosch. The Uittenboschs live in both Ontario, Canada, and in Florida in the United States. Hans is a chaplain who ministers to the passengers and crews on cruise ships.

Special Note: In 2014, ACTION partnered with Vancouver Missionsfest in their annual Special Project, that allows the public to participate. This project, called Bundles of Hope, was to collect donated sets of newborn baby clothes. The donations were then sent to ACTION's Shalom Birthing Clinic in Manila, Philippines. The Special Project was a great success, which will bless hundreds of poor, filipino families. Be blessed by watching the video about the impact of this Special Project: Vancouver Missionsfest 2014 Special Project.

ATTENTION CANADIAN DONORS: for those of you that donate via cheque/money order, please be aware that, because of tighter restrictions by Canadian banks, cheques and money orders MUST be made payable to ACTION's full name, "ACTION INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES". If it is not, the banks will reject them, and ACTION Canada will have notify donors to re-issue new cheques/money orders with the full name on it, thus delaying your donation. If you have any questions about this, please contact the ACTION Canada office.
