Canadians for a Nuclear Weapons Convention / Rassemblement canadien pour une convention sur les armes nucléaires

Mission

“The CNWC mission is to support and promote nuclear disarmament in all its dimension, with ongoing attention to the need for a comprehensive agreement or convention through which to codify all the agreements, regulations, institutional arrangements, and verification measures essential for accomplishing the prohibition and irreversible elimination of nuclear weapons.”


Purpose

Canadians for a Nuclear Weapons Convention (CNWC) seeks to inform and educate Canadians on the increasing danger of nuclear proliferation and nuclear war. We support and endorse the UN Secretary-General’s five point plan for nuclear disarmament, including the endorsement of a nuclear weapons convention. We seek to engender political will by educational means, resulting in the adoption of a nuclear weapons convention as a component of Canadian foreign policy. We are non-partisan, open to all members of the Order of Canada, and are focused on this single issue.

Growing Support: There is a growing consensus expressed by world leaders on the urgent need for ridding the world of nuclear weapons, well expressed by the Global Zero movement. A Nuclear Weapons Convention is widely recognized as the best negotiating process yet devised to bring about nuclear disarmament.
