Canada: Submission to the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

, Index number: AMR 20/6620/2017

Amnesty International presents this submission to the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (the Committee) on the occasion of the review of Canada’s twenty-first to twenty-third periodic reports during the Committee’s 93rd Session. Although Canada has undertaken certain positive steps since the Committee’s last review of Canada in 2012, many of the obligations under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (the Convention) remain unimplemented. This briefing highlights concerns about Canada’s implementation of the Convention in relation to Indigenous peoples and refugees and migrants.
