Canada takes steps to increase security on the Korean Peninsula 


Canada has announced a $3.25-million contribution from its Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Threat Reduction Program.

Support for efforts to counter North Korean WMD development and financing

Funding announced: $3.25 million
Time frame: January 2018 to December 2018

In an effort to assist partner countries to fully implement UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and strengthen efforts to prevent North Korea from financing its WMD programs, Canada is providing support to the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Cooperative Threat Reduction to undertake capacity-building activities.

As part of these activities, focused training will be given to foreign ministry, law enforcement, customs, regulatory and border security officials on:

  1. understanding and implementing North Korea-related UNSC   resolutions;
  2. developing and implementing measures to combat money laundering by North Korean nationals and front companies; and
  3. enforcing UNSC resolutions and identifying the illicit networks and tactics North Korea has used to finance and procure dual-use goods and technologies for its nuclear and missile development.
