Matt Attends Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom

On July 25 and 26, I had the honour to represent Canada at the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom.

Canada is steadfast in our commitment to Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that enshrines the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. We are firmly dedicated to the promotion of inclusion and respect for diversity as well as the protection of all human rights, including freedom of religion or belief, at home and internationally.

I had the opportunity to participate in plenary sessions with government leaders, representatives of international organizations and civil society, and religious leaders to identify concrete ways to combat religious persecution and discrimination, and ensure greater respect for freedom of religion or belief for all.
