Minister Wilson-Raybould Visits Vanuatu
"I am very pleased to visit Vanuatu and meet the ni-Vanuatu people. I look forward to learning how their legal system works and what initiatives and changes they have made to better empower their population. So many countries share a common desire for modernizing their justice systems to be more responsive and relevant to their citizens. Canada will work with our allies in the South Pacific, and elsewhere in the world, to share knowledge on leading practices and progressive initiatives aimed at creating a more fair, just and inclusive society."
