Canada – Submission to the Human Rights Committee 132nd Session June 2021

The following submission, made in advance of the 132nd session of the Human Rights Committee, covers our concerns about the continued prevalence of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Canada and the failure of the Canadian government to take concrete and effective action to end FGM in Canada and provide support for survivors. In this submission, we recommend questions to be asked to Canada by the Committee and we respectively offer suggestions on the action needed necessary to protect women and girls from FGM in Canada.
