In Canada almost 15% of the population is living in poverty. 200,000 people remain visibly homeless and 3.8 million don’t have access to adequate food. When the United Nations tells Canada it has to take action to solve these problems, how does the Government of Canada respond?

On October 7th, join international rights experts Leilani Farha (Canada Without Poverty) and Margot Young (Housing Justice Project) in a discussion about the United Nations human rights system, Canada’s international human rights commitments and obligations, and the recent Universal Periodic Review of Canada’s human rights record.
