Abstract:  The Peace Work, formerly the New Brunswick Peace Movement, consists of individuals throughout the province who maintain contact with each other and who share the common goal of working for a more 'peaceful' human world. The planning committee of the network disseminates information packets that are 'peace-oriented' to groups and individuals who have peace concerns.

One of the central goals of the network is to involve more people in the process of peace by way of self-education and eventually non-violent action. The network also seeks to "encourage the understanding of the inter-relationship between such "seemingly" unrelated issues as peace, prosperity, human rights, arms race, foreign policy, Third World misery and all Western minorities".

The planning committee mails its information packets outside the network to interest groups including labour, teachers and media people. The committee also relates to the business community; it is felt that the participation of business is an important part of any serious attempt at military re-conversion.

The network keeps in touch with a number of national and international organizations which are dealing with the peace issue and which are developing strategies, national or international, for peace. The Network has available some information outlining the work of these groups.

The Peace Network is also connected with what it describes as "a Growing Maritime Peace Network".
