Foundation is supported by federal government

To reinforce our presence as a premier force in promoting genocide education in Canada, Anthony Housefather, Mount Royal MP and Chair of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights read a member’s statement in Parliament on December 11. This date was the 70th anniversary of the UN’s adoption of the Genocide Convention. To a standing ovation, Housefather expressed support for our guide on genocide, and urged all provinces to make the study of genocide compulsory in high schools.
