#YesWeCanEndTB (March - September 2023):

  • At the United Nations High-Level Meeting (HLM) on TB on Sept 22, Canada had an opportunity to reaffirm its commitment to eliminating TB but failed to fully step up. We celebrate the successes that came out of this global meeting, including the adoption of a new political declaration signed onto by UN Member States and renewed funding from Canada for TB REACH. However, we express our disappointment in the lack of bold leadership from Canada, specifically in the absence of an investment in TB research and development. Meeting the global goal of ending TB by 2030 will require strong political will, demonstrated by high-impact commitments and sustained funding. We know that Canada could and should have done more at the TB HLM and continue to call on our leaders to step up for the millions of people affected by TB, read our full statement here.

#GameChangers2030 (June 2023):

  • Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced at the UN High-Level Meeting on Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness and Response that Canada is increasing its contribution on Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) to low-income countries for much-needed climate action, future pandemic preparedness and poverty reduction from 18% to 26%. While it’s not the 40% you asked for in June, Canada's contribution of total shared SDRs is larger than any other government, factoring in its special SDR contribution to Ukraine. A HUGE thank you to our volunteers who tirelessly advocated for Canada to step up. This is why we do it.

We achieved a lot in the past years across many of our campaigns and issue areas. To see the full extent of our impact and action, check out our 'A Parliamentarian's Year in Review 2023'!

The current global system is failing children and world leaders are not doing enough. Youth are nearly invisible in positions of power but will live with the consequences of the decisions made today. We are calling on Canada to commit to listening and meaningfully engaging children and youth at all decision-making tables.
