Canada: Submission to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: 57th session, 22 February 2016

Index number: AMR 20/3361/2016. Amnesty International has drawn frequent attention in recent years to mounting concerns that Canada’s domestic human rights record and global human rights standing are both in serious and deeply troubling decline. This submission, prepared for the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, Amnesty International highlights the opportunities and the urgency of reversing that decline and advancing stronger economic, social, and cultural rights protections in Canada, as well as sets out its recommendations about the implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights by Canada within the framework set out by this Committee in the List of Issues prepared for the review of the sixth periodic report of Canada, at the 57th Session of the Committee from 22 February to 4 March 2016.
