Statement by the Prime Minister on United Nations Day

OTTAWA, ON, Oct. 24, 2020 /CNW/ - The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on United Nations Day:"Today, on United Nations Day, we recognize what we can achieve when countries around the world work together toward shared goals."In 1945, the United Nations (UN) was created to provide a forum where countries can join forces to build a world that is safe, peaceful, and prosperous for everyone. Since then, it has helped improve the lives of millions of people, including by fighting HIV and AIDS, ending wars, averting famines, and addressing the needs of the world's poorest and most vulnerable. It has also brought to light once invisible issues, such as modern-day slavery and the use of child soldiers."As we mark the UN's 75th anniversary, Canada remains a proud founding member. From our leadership efforts to modernize peacekeeping, to our support for refugees, to our promotion of human rights and social progress, we are committed to working with other countries to shape a better future. That is why in 2015, we joined fellow UN Member States to design the blueprint for our collective future with the 2030 Agenda and its 17 interconnected Sustainable Development Goals. Our country remains as committed as ever to achieving this vision for a better world.
