Canada repeals sanctions against Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia

News Release

April 13, 2017, Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada

The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, announced today that Canada is repealing its sanctions against Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia under the United Nations Act.

In spring 2016, the United Nations Security Council adopted resolutions 2283 and 2288, which terminated all sanctions against Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia, respectively, as both countries have made considerable progress in terms of peace and stability.

As a member state of the United Nations, Canada welcomed the decisions of the United Nations Security Council and passed the necessary regulations to lift all of Canada’s sanctions against Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia.
