Report to the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

On August 14, 2017, Canada appeared before the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) to defend its record on protecting the rights of minority groups. EarthRights International, MiningWatch Canada, and the University of Toronto International Human Rights Program issued this report calling on the CERD to denounce Canada’s ongoing failure to prevent Canadian mining and petroleum companies violating human rights – and especially the rights of Indigenous peoples – abroad.
