The Committee used Canada’s implementation of the Convention as a
lens through which to analyze this country’s broader approach to ratification and
implementation of international human rights treaties, expanding upon the work that the
Committee began with its first study, Promises to Keep: Implementing Canada’s Human
Rights Obligations. In the end, our intensive study of children’s rights and the
Convention on the Rights of the Child only confirmed the Committee’s earlier
conclusions that Canada must begin to take its international human rights treaty
obligations more seriously. When the Canadian government ratifies a treaty it must keep
its promises and work diligently towards effective implementation of that treaty at home. References to witness statements about the potential for CRIA to support better implementation.
