The Canadian Bible Society supports over 30 Bible translation, publishing, distribution and engagement projects around the world, in partnership with the United Bible Societies. Each month, our appeals focus on specific projects. Read details of these projects in the monthly appeals below.
For many years, the Cuban government tried to extinguish Christian faith in Cuba. The communist ideology left absolutely no room for God in the life of the nation. Cuba was a very difficult place to be a Christian. And it was nearly impossible to get a Bible and come to know the Saviour we celebrate at Christmas.
Then God broke the doors wide open… and Bibles flowed into Cuba.
But purchasing a Bible is nearly impossible for most Cubans, because a Bible costs two weeks’ salary!
With the help of generous donors, one million Bibles have already been distributed in Cuba. Yet the need remains critical. Please join our Million More Bibles for Cuba campaign today – while the door in Cuba remains open.

This month, we are focusing on providing hope and a second chance at life to young victims of difficult circumstances. Many of these young people grow up in violent or destructive homes in impoverished communities with the highest violent crime rates, and in an effort to find a sense of belonging end up falling in with the wrong crowds, such as gangs or drug cartels. Poor, alone and not seeing any other way to survive, these young people often turn to lives of crime.
By donating today, you will help someone in need of a second chance by sharing the hope-giving Word of God.
For a huge part of the world, the message of Easter is still locked away. It remains hidden behind untranslated words – the biggest obstacle we face in spreading God’s Word across the globe. Surprisingly, one billion people – in this day and age of technology – want but still can’t access the Bible in a language they can understand. In fact, there are over 4,000 languages that have never had a single Bible verse translated.
With your generosity, we can overcome this daunting challenge. Please help unlock the Scriptures for those who are still waiting to read and hear God’s Word in their language.Please make a gift to help unlock a verse of Scripture through Bible translation.
What if believing in the gospel meant losing your job, your family rejecting you – or putting your life in danger? Thankfully, here in Canada, we don’t have to worry about expressing our faith.
In countries like Morocco things are much different. Every week, 100 new people ask for Bibles but the Bible Society in Morocco – operating under strict government restrictions – struggles to provide God’s Word to everyone.
We need those who are at liberty to express their faith – like you – to help those who cannot. When we hear from you, we will send your support to areas where the church is growing, and Bibles are nearly impossible to come by.
Please make a gift to provide God’s Word to people in places where it’s not readily available. It’s where His Word is least available – that your generosity can make the biggest difference.Please make a gift to provide God’s Word to people in places where it’s least accessible.
The Bible is not powerful on a printing press. But the Bible in someone’s hands stirs to life. And when God speaks, lives are transformed.
Your generosity has inspired us to deliver Bibles in a variety of formats, designed to help people across the globe hear God speak:
- To the blind, through Braille Bibles.
- To the deaf, through sign language videos.
- To the illiterate, through audio Bibles called Proclaimers.
It’s a new year and a new day. Together, we will try to fill the year with God’s promises, hope, peace and most of all love. God’s Word changes lives and you are part of the miracle.Help provide Bibles to people who want to hear God speak through His Word.
God’s Word – the gift that changes lives
