About 40 Days for Life


Join the next internationally coordinated campaign to save lives, this Fall from September 28 - November 6, 2016!

This Fall, there will be hundreds of communities in North America, including several Canadian cities, simultaneously hosting a 40 Days For Life campaign from September 28 -  November 6, 2016.

If you wish to join the next 40 Days For Life in your community, please contact your local campaign coordinator (below) and find out how you can join a prayer vigil. If you wish to bring 40 Days for Life to your community go to www.40daysforlife.com to apply to host a campaign.

Please consider becoming a prayer volunteer by donating at least 1 hour of prayer and fasting in front of the local abortion facility. If you are part of a church community, perhaps your pastor would like to "Adopt a day"? Do you belong to a lay movement or ministry? Why not book a full day of prayer for your group?

The fruits of 40 Days For Life and its history in Canada

11,796 lives saved!

After witnessing tremendous success by the 40 Days For Life program in the United States, Campaign Life Coalition brought it into Canada for the first time in 2007, holding our nation's first 40 day vigils in Ottawa and Halifax. Since then, CLC volunteers and other pro-life groups have organized 40 Days For Life campaigns in more than 20 cities across Canada. Some cities run the campaign twice a year (Spring & Fall). Other cities run them only once annually.

Since 2007, 4,168 individual campaigns have taken place in 636 cities in 36 nations across the world and 700,000 volunteers have joined together in this historic display of unity, prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.

40 Days For Life has succeeded in shutting down 75 abortion facilities, and has documented saving at least 11,796 babies. In addition to the babies, 133 abortion workers have quit their jobs and walked away from the abortion industry and thousands of women have been spared the suffering and trauma that comes with the decision to abort one's own child.
