Canada: Human rights in peril. Amnesty international: Submission to the 44th session of the UPR working group, 10 November 2023

In this submission Amnesty International assesses the national human rights framework with regards to international human rights instruments, particularly in relation to the rights of Indigenous Peoples, refugees’ and migrants’ rights, and gender rights. In terms of the human rights situation on the ground, significant concerns persist in Canada’s failure to ratify or support various international human rights instruments, gaps in the national human rights framework, intersecting forms of systemic racism, discrimination and violence, inadequate legal enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights, and insufficient human rights protection in trade and the overseas extractive sector.
