Position Paper: Canadian foreign policy, Israeli colonies, and CIFTA

This position paper looks at Canadian policy on Israel’s colonies and explains why Canada should pass the bill C-326 to amend the CIFTA Implementation Act. Indeed, even if according to International Law, Israel’s colonies are illegal, Canada still have a free trade agreement with Israel and still applies preferential treatment to goods originating from the colonies. Canada should follow the European Union’s example and no longer applies such treatment. 

Position Paper: Canadian policy as it relates to Israel's wall

This position paper first summarizes the numerous and devastating impacts of Israel’s wall on the Palestinian population, before displaying the Canadian policy on the subject and its loopholes. This paper comes to the conclusion that Israel has the right to protect its citizens but that it should remain in conformity with international law.
