Submission to the United Nations Human Rights Council Universal Periodic Review Working Group: Third Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Canada

The Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network makes this submission to the United Nations Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR) Working Group in advance of the third review of Canada, to take place in April/May 2018.

In this submission, the Legal Network describes four key areas requiring action from the government of Canada to fulfill the commitments it made at the second UPR cycle as well as to address ongoing violations of its international human rights obligations. These human rights priorities are the rights of people who use drugs, the rights of people in sex work, the rights of people in prison and the rights of people living with HIV.
