  • Toward a just and lasting peace in Ukraine
    When Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, it unleashed an attack on democracy, freedom, and the rules-based international order. Despite Russia’s relentless war of aggression, Ukrainians are standing strong, and Canada and our international partners proudly stand with them in defence of their homeland. Ukraine’s fight is a fight for international law, for the United Nations Charter, and for innocent civilians, including children, who deserve to live in peace.At the G7 Leaders’ Summit in Apulia, Italy, earlier this week, Prime Minister Trudeau announced key measures to impose costs on Russia for its illegal and unjustifiable war against Ukraine. Canada is sanctioning individuals and entities related to Russia’s military-industrial complex as well as those involved in sanctions circumvention and propaganda operations. We are contributing $5 billion to G7 Extraordinary Revenue Acceleration Loans for Ukraine, which aims to bring forward future revenues from frozen Russian sovereign assets, to provide Ukraine with approximately $69 billion (US$50 billion) as it continues to defend its freedom, sovereignty, and territorial integrity. Prime Minister Trudeau also highlighted that the first four of 50 Canadian-built armoured combat support vehicles have departed London, Ontario, and are being delivered to Europe to support Ukraine’s Armed Forces.As their fight for freedom continues, Canada and our international partners are once again reaffirming our solidarity with Ukraine and our support for a just and lasting peace, with the needs of Ukrainians at its core.The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today participated in the Summit on Peace in Ukraine, in Lucerne, Switzerland, and announced a $52.4 million package of measures in support of Ukraine.Canada’s newly announced package of measures in support of Ukrainians includes $15 million to:Support vulnerable children, youth at risk, and the reintegration of displaced children returning to Ukraine through improved child protection services and family-based care options.Improve access to justice for survivors of war crimes.Increase families’ and civil society’s awareness about the missing persons process.Support male survivors of conflict-related sexual violence, including prisoners of war.Due to Russia’s renewed attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure this year, millions of civilians are left without electricity, water, and heat. That’s why the Government of Canada is investing $20 million to:Support Ukraine’s urgent efforts to replace damaged energy equipment and infrastructure.To help improve the safety of Ukrainians and help Ukraine rebuild, the Government of Canada is investing $15.4 million to:Support the International Monetary Fund in its efforts to help Ukraine acquire the technical assistance and training needed for economic reforms and eventual accession to the European Union.Improve Ukraine’s capacity to safely clear its territory of mines and other explosive remnants of war.Provide Ukraine’s government with technical assistance from Government of Canada experts in the justice and energy sectors.Nuclear facilities are facing threats and security vulnerabilities. That’s why the Government of Canada is also investing $2 million to:Uphold the safe and secure operations of nuclear facilities in Ukraine through the International Atomic Energy Agency.At the Summit, Prime Minister Trudeau chaired a session on the human dimension of the war and met with international counterparts, including the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, to reaffirm Canada’s support for Ukraine’s Peace Formula. The Prime Minister underlined the importance of diverse Ukrainian voices – particularly those of women – in planning and implementing the Formula.As co-chair with Ukraine of the International Coalition for the Return of Ukrainian Children, the Prime Minister underscored the recent launch of the #BringKidsBack Communications Network, an international network of Coalition members that works on shared information campaigns to raise awareness and advocate for the safe return and well-being of deported and forcibly transferred Ukrainian children. He encouraged other countries to join the Coalition and rally behind our efforts to help Ukrainian children displaced by Russia’s unjustifiable aggression to return to their rightful homes and communities in Ukraine.Leaders reaffirmed their support for a comprehensive, just, and lasting peace for Ukraine in a joint statement. They stressed the importance of the safe use of nuclear energy and reiterated that any threat or use of nuclear weapons is inadmissible. Leaders agreed that food security must not be weaponized and that prisoners of war and all illegally deported and displaced Ukrainian children – as well as other Ukrainian civilians who were unlawfully detained – must be returned to Ukraine.Quote“Russia’s full-scale invasion has had devastating effects on Ukrainians, from the millions forced to flee their homes to the thousands of children that have been illegally deported. Canada and our international partners are united in our support of a just and lasting peace for Ukraine. To the Ukrainians who continue to stand strong in defence of their homeland, know that we will keep supporting you until victory.”The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of CanadaQuick FactsWhile in Lucerne, Prime Minister Trudeau met with the President of Finland, Alexander Stubb, and the President of Kenya, William Ruto.Earlier this week, Prime Minister Trudeau announced key measures to support Ukraine’s fight for freedom. This includes:A $5 billion contribution to G7 Extraordinary Revenue Acceleration Loans for Ukraine.Sanctions on 27 individuals and entities involved in Russia’s military-industrial complex as well as sanctions circumvention and disinformation.Experts estimate that since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, thousands of Ukrainian children have been deported, forcibly transferred, or otherwise displaced from Ukraine to temporarily occupied territories and to Russia, for the purpose of erasing their Ukrainian identity. Currently, fewer than 400 children have been returned to Ukraine and reunited with their families.Since 2022, Canada has committed over $19 billion in multifaceted support to Ukraine. This includes over $12.4 billion in financial assistance, which has helped the Ukrainian government to continue to operate, including by delivering essential government services and pensions to Ukrainians. Other assistance includes over $4 billion in military aid and equipment donations, $352.5 million in humanitarian assistance, $442 million in development assistance, and over $210 million in security and stabilization programming.Since 2014, Canada has imposed sanctions on more than 3,000 individuals and entities in Russia, Belarus, Moldova, and Ukraine for their complicity in the violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity as well as gross and systematic human rights violations. Many of these sanctions have been implemented in co-ordination with Canada’s partners.In 2022, Canada introduced the world’s first civil forfeiture regime for sanctioned assets. Budget 2024 announced the federal government’s intention to engage international partners to identify additional avenues to hold Russia to account and advance any necessary amendments to Canada’s sanctions regime.Last February, Canada and Ukraine signed an Agreement on Security Cooperation, in line with the 2023 G7 Joint Declaration of Support for Ukraine.Canada will provide over $3 billion in critical financial and military support to Ukraine in 2024.Related ProductsBackgrounder: Toward a just and lasting peace in UkraineSummit on Peace for Ukraine - Joint Communiqué on a Peace FrameworkPrime Minister Justin Trudeau meets with President of Finland Alexander StubbPrime Minister Justin Trudeau meets with President of Kenya William RutoAssociated LinksPrime Minister strengthens global security and stability at the G7 SummitCanada announces additional sanctions against Russia and its illegal war against UkraineInternational Coalition for the Return of Ukrainian ChildrenWomen, peace and securityCanada reaffirms our unwavering support for Ukraine for as long as it takesCanada’s response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine
  • Summit on Peace for Ukraine - Joint Communiqué on a Peace Framework
    The ongoing war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine continues to cause large-scale human suffering and destruction, and to create risks and crises with global repercussions. We gathered in Switzerland on 15-16 June 2024 to enhance a high-level dialogue on pathways towards a comprehensive, just and lasting peace for Ukraine. We reiterated resolutions A/RES/ES-1 and A/RES/ES-11/6 adopted at the UN General Assembly and underscored our commitment to upholding International Law including the United Nations Charter.This Summit was built on the previous discussions that have taken place based on Ukraine’s Peace Formula and other peace proposals which are in line with international law, including the United Nations Charter.We deeply appreciate Switzerland’s hospitality and its initiative to host the High-Level Summit as expression of its firm commitment to promoting international peace and security.We had a fruitful, comprehensive and constructive exchange of various views on pathways towards a framework for a comprehensive, just and lasting peace based on international law, including the United Nations Charter. In particular, we reaffirm our commitment to refraining from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, the principles of sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity of all states, including Ukraine, within their internationally recognized borders, including territorial waters, and the resolution of disputes through peaceful means as principles of international law.We, furthermore, have a common vision on the following crucial aspects:Firstly, any use of nuclear energy and nuclear installations must be safe, secured, safe-guarded and environmentally sound. Ukrainian nuclear power plants and installations, including Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, must operate safely and securely under full sovereign control of Ukraine and in line with IAEA principles and under its supervision.Any threat or use of nuclear weapons in the context of the ongoing war against Ukraine is inadmissible. Secondly, global food security depends on uninterrupted manufacturing and supply of food products. In this regard, free, full and safe commercial navigation, as well as access to sea ports in the Black and Azov Seas, are critical. Attacks on merchant ships in ports and along the entire route, as well as against civilian ports and civilian port infrastructure, are unacceptable.Food security must not be weaponized in any way. Ukrainian agricultural and other products should be securely and freely provided to interested third countries. Thirdly, all prisoners of war must be released by complete exchange. All deported and unlawfully displaced Ukrainian children, and all other Ukrainian civilians who were unlawfully detained, must be returned to Ukraine.We believe that reaching peace requires the involvement of and dialogue between all parties. We, therefore, decided to undertake concrete steps in the future in the above-mentioned areas with further engagement of the representatives all parties.The United Nations Charter, including the principles of respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of all states, can and will serve as a basis in achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in Ukraine.
  • Statement by the Prime Minister on Eid al-Adha
    The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Eid al-Adha:“Today at sundown, Muslims in Canada and around the world will celebrate Eid al-Adha and mark the end of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.“Eid al-Adha is one of the most sacred dates in Islam, commemorating the sacrifice and devotion of the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham).“During this time, Muslims across Canada will gather to pray at their local mosques, share meals with loved ones, and provide food to those in need. As Muslim communities celebrate Eid with kindness, selflessness, and charity, let us remember that these values are also Canadian values.“Celebrations will be sombre this year, as the humanitarian crisis in Gaza continues to unfold. The scale of human suffering in Gaza, including in Rafah, is catastrophic. We reaffirm the need for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and long-lasting peace in the region.“Amid the rise in Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism across our communities, we’re standing up against all forms of hate, including through Canada’s Anti-Racism Strategy 2024-2028. With Budget 2024, we’re also increasing funding for the Security Infrastructure Program, protecting communities at risk of hate-motivated crimes.“Muslim communities have helped build the strong and diverse Canada we know and love, and we will always stand with them.“On behalf of the Government of Canada, I extend warm wishes to everyone celebrating Eid al-Adha.“!عيد مبارك“Eid Mubarak!”

A country, after all, is not something you build as the pharaohs built the pyramids, and then leave standing there to defy eternity. A country is something that is built every day out of certain basic shared values.
