Original language of petition: English
Canada is a steadfast friend and ally of Israel and friend of the Palestinian people. Canada also believes that both Israel and the Palestinian Authority must fully respect international human rights and humanitarian law, which is key to ensuring the protection of civilians, and can contribute to the creation of a climate conducive to achieving a just, lasting and comprehensive peace settlement. The promotion and protection of human rights is an integral part of Canada’s foreign policy and remains a priority for the Government of Canada. Canada also believes that civil society is a critical element of inclusive and democratic societies.
Canada rejects terrorism in all forms. The Government of Canada does not tolerate any misuse or diversion of assistance to support terrorism or terrorist entities listed in accordance with Canadian legislation, such as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
Canada is committed to providing international assistance to help meet the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable people, including Palestinians. Accountability and safeguards are central to the management of this assistance. The Government of Canada provides assistance for Palestinians through organizations with proven track records of delivering assistance effectively and in accordance with Canadian requirements. These organizations have an on-the-ground presence, as well as strong anti-fraud, anti-corruption, monitoring, and audit and evaluation practices. Canada exercises enhanced due diligence for all international assistance funding for Palestinians—this includes strong anti-terrorism provisions in funding agreements, ongoing oversight, regular site visits, and systematic screening of organizations and their key decision makers against Government of Canada terrorist lists.
