Canada: Submission to the United Nations Human Rights Committee follow up to the concluding observations of Canada’s sixth periodic report

, Index number: AMR 20/6379/2017

In this submission to the United Nations Human Rights Committee (the Committee), Amnesty International evaluates Canada’s progress in implementing the Committee’s recommendations on missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls; immigration detention, asylum-seekers and non-refoulement and Indigenous lands and titles. Although Canada has undertaken certain positive steps, including establishing a National Inquiry on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and beginning a review of the immigration detention regime, many crucial aspects of the Committee’s recommendations remain unimplemented.
