Canada has is undergoing a second Universal Periodic Review (UPR) by the United Nations Human Rights Council.  This Review will assess Canada’s performance in relation to our country’s international human rights commitments.  The Review takes place in Geneva, Switzerland this upcoming March. We are holding an Update Session on our activity around Canada’s international human rights obligations that relate to housing.  We will also discuss action being taken by a loose coalition of Canadian NGOs to get ready for the session in Geneva.

You are invited to come and join the discussion. If possible, please RSVP to myoung@law.ubc.ca.
