Read all about what the organisation has achieved including the "historic step... in the area of business and human rights, as an intergovernmental working group prepares to negotiate a legally-binding instrument to hold businesses to account for human rights abuses."

In July 2015, Canada will be reviewed by the UN Human Rights Committee for its compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, an important human rights Treaty.
