LONDON, ON--(Marketwired - July 12, 2016) - International Justice Mission Canada is proud to be Celtic Thunder's charity of choice for all Canadian tour stops. The 2016 North America tour includes 11 cities in Canada.

Celtic Thunder is inspired by IJM Canada's vision to rescue thousands, protect millions and prove that justice for the poor is possible.

"Celtic Thunder is excited to partner with IJM Canada, an organization that works to protect the poor and vulnerable in the developing world from violence and exploitation," says Neil Byrne, one of the Celtic Thunder Principal Vocalists.

"Achieving our vision will require the support of many partners and we are grateful to Celtic Thunder for helping to make it a reality," says Glenn Waterman, IJM Canada's Vice-President of Development and Marketing.
