Global land rights: Canada’s missed opportunity

Canada's Missed Opportunity

Courtesy of

We would like to thank the Canadian International Council for publishing an opinion piece written by CELADA’s executive team on their International Affairs blog. In this piece CELADA seeks to challenge the Canadian government’s current stance on Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) — mainly their unwillingness to support international legislation that incorporates FPIC language — and to highlight how this has impacted the land rights of marginalized populations around the world, most significantly in Africa.

It is our hope that this piece inspires Canadians to reflect, to debate, and to question our government’s reprehensible policy on this human rights issue.
