Control Arms submission to Foreign Affairs on Canada and the Arms Trade Treaty

Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada conducted a technical assessment of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) with a view to providing the Government of Canada recommendations on the Government’s possible next steps, including whether or not Canada should sign the treaty.
As part of this process, the Control Arms Coalition in Canada (which CCIC is a member of) has prepared a submission, which outlines: the reasons why Canada should sign the ATT; the expected impact (and lack thereof) of the ATT on legitimate gun ownership in Canada; the changes that Canada will need to bring to its existing conventional arms transfer regulations and procedures in order to meet the ATT’s requirements and standards; recommended voluntary action to assist with treaty implementation; the conclusion.
