Canada became a signatory to the United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees on 4 June 1969. The Canadian Council on Refugees (CCR) will commemorate the 40th anniversary of this event, following their annual Spring Consultation to be held May 28-30, 2009 in Quebec City, QC.
The theme for the CCR Spring Consultation this year is “Protecting Refugees and Immigrants in Hard Times” (and includes a session on children in detention).
