In this submission, Amnesty International provides information as stipulated in the General Guidelines for the Preparation of Information under the Universal Periodic Review. Amnesty International raises concerns about Canada’s failure to ratify or support some international human rights instruments, approach to implementing international human rights obligations and failure consistently to provide disaggregated data about human rights protection. The organization is also concerned about protection of the rights of Indigenous peoples, and of refugees and migrants, human rights concerns associated with counter-terrorism and with the administration of justice, and protection of economic, social and cultural rights.
