1998: 50th Anniversary
of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Welcome to the website for the Canadian Non-Governmental Organizations that participated in the recent review of Canada's compliance with the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESC)
NGOs play an important part in the United Nations review process, providing reliable and well-documented information to the U.N. Committee on which an objective assessment can be made of the state’s compliance with fundamental human rights.
We hope to provide you with complete information
in one place of the whole process of the review of Canada.
