Canada’s human rights commitments

Responding to years of UN bashing by the Government of Canada, a group of 17 United Nations and foreign policy experts held media conferences across Canada on September 23, 2013 to explain what Canada should be saying and doing to help regain its place as a leader at the UN.

At the same time, the UN & Canada Project launched a booklet of essays to help Canadians understand the significant impact international institutions have on the world and to encourage our government to reposition Canada in world affairs.

A new edition was published in 2014 and a special election issue of WFMC’s publication, Mondial, came out in the fall of 2016.

All of these materials regarding Canada’s relationship with the United Nations are available on a dedicated website.
