The Russian Canadian Democratic Alliance (RCDA) is a non-government organization that is built around a community of former and current citizens of Russia in Canada who strongly believe that Russia should be a democratic, peaceful country that respects human rights and the rule of Law.

RCDA has been designated as an “undesirable organization” in Russia. Russian law imposes criminal liabilities for participation in the activities of an “undesirable organization” (learn moreavailable in Russian only).


To contribute to the development of the Russian Canadian community around the ideals of democracy, human and civil rights, and the rule of law.


To contribute to the formation of Russia as a democratic and peaceful country, as well as to foster constructive relationships between Russia and Canada based on mutual respect.

Our Goal

To form a strong community and create a platform for Russian Canadians and Russians in Canada who share democratic values.

What We Have Already Done

Our activists have been supporting Russian human rights organizations, organizing and participating in rallies, organizing evenings of letter-writing to political prisoners, fundraisers for humanitarian aid to Ukraine and in support of LGBTQ+ individuals in Russia.

What to Expect in the Future

On our social media, we will be publishing information about the events, initiatives, and rallies corresponding to our mission and values. In particular, we plan to announce protests, concerts of Russian musicians openly opposing the war, lectures, conferences, meetups and other cultural events.

Thank you!

We acknowledge that these lands are now home to many First Nation, Inuit, and Métis communities. We honour the Traditional Owners of the land on which we live and work. We pay our respects to the Elders, past, present, and future, and also to the land itself. We are all interconnected as treaty people with shared obligations to learn, respect, honour, and sustain. We’ve been reflecting on our responsibility to follow the knowledge, leadership, and guidance of local Indigenous Peoples to ensure the health and integrity of these lands and waters for generations to come.

As we are located in different cities in Canada and not all gathered in the same space, we recognize that this land acknowledgment might not be appropriate for the territory that you are currently on. We ask that if this is the case, you take the responsibility to acknowledge the traditional territory you are on, and the current treaty holders.
