Submission to Global Affairs Canada: Human Rights Priorities for Canadian International Assistance

“The Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network welcomes this opportunity to provide our perspectives on the government’s priorities for establishing an international assistance policy and funding framework. When International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau took up her post in November 2015, she was tasked with leading Canada’s efforts to ‘provide humanitarian assistance to help reduce poverty and inequality in the world’ and refocusing Canada’s development assistance ‘on helping the poorest and most vulnerable.’ This renewed focus on marginalized communities must underlie this review of Canada’s international assistance efforts and shape its approach to implementing the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.”
