Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The citizenship guide is a tool utilized by newcomers to Canada as a resource to learn about our country and prepare for the citizenship test
  • Canada is a welcoming and tolerant society that promotes gender equality at home and on the world stage
  • Performing or assisting in female genital mutilation (FGM) is a crime in Canada
  • Recent reports indicate that FGM practices are affecting Canadians, both at home and abroad
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to ensure that the final draft of the new citizenship guide includes the condemnation of female genital mutilation.
