PASC is part of the Abya Yala Network, a group of grassroots organizations in Canada working together to support and show solidarity with anti-mining struggles across the American continent. The network was formed in Toronto at the Mining (In)justice conference in May 2010 at the request of representatives of several Latin American communities affected by the Canadian mining industry.
PASC contributes to the Anticapitalist Convergence, a Montreal-based grouping of individuals and groups sharing a global analysis of social and political issues based on the Peoples' Global Action principles.

The People's Commission Network is a Montreal network which monitors and opposes the "national security agenda". The network is a space for individuals and groups who face oppression in the name of "national security" - such as indigenous people, immigrants, racialized communities, radical groups, social justice organizations, labour unions - and their allies, to form alliances, share information, and coordinate strategies to defend their full rights and dignity.
PASC works with the People's Commission Network because we believe that so-called national security serves as a pretext to criminalize social movements throughout the Americas.

Active since 1982, the RQGE is network of grass roots organizations dedicated to environmental protection and the construction of a more ecological society.
