Principles

Ever since conception in St. Catharines, Ontario over 25 years ago, Not Just Tourists has maintained a core set of values when providing humanitarian services to developing countries.

Our Values
We are Collaborative
We are Transparent
We are Non-Bureaucratic
We are Committed
We are Inclusive

Each Not Just Tourists branch within Canada are to be guided by the following principles:

Volunteer-Run
Branches will be coordinated, monitored, and maintained by volunteers.

Not-For-Profit
Branches will be categorized as, and continue to be, not-for-profit organizations.

Non-Political & Secular
Branches will not express the viewpoint of or promote any philosophy, political party, product, business, religious organization, or group. However, individuals may hold differing opinions.

Co-Operative
Different branches will respect and consider the impact of various actions and policies on other groups, and share potentially useful information.

Donations
Upon donation, all materials become the property of the organization and are to be use solely for the purpose of humanitarian aid.
