A Positive Contribution to International Peace and Security

We will renew Canada’s commitment to peacekeeping efforts, and use the expertise of our Armed Forces to help others prepare for climate-related disasters.

Peace operations around the world give help and hope to millions of people affected by conflicts –and they serve Canada’s interests, too. A more peaceful world is a safer and more prosperous place for everyone.

To ensure that Canada continues to make a positive contribution to international peace and security, we will move forward with new investments to support United Nations peacekeeping efforts – with more help to advance the women, peace, and security agenda; support conflict prevention and peacebuilding; and respond to grave human rights abuses.

We will also expand our cooperation and training assistance – drawing on the expertise of the Canadian Armed Forces in responding to natural disasters and humanitarian crises – to help other countries at greater risk of disasters due to climate change.
