Canada continues to invest in modernizing and enhancing peace operations

Backgrounder

Canada’s Peace and Stabilization Operations Program (PSOPs) invests in modernizing and enhancing peace operations. Canada’s support is also designed to advance the role of women and girls in all stages of peace and to protect the human rights of women and girls in fragile, conflict and post-conflict countries.

Overall, between 2016 and 2019, PSOPs is providing more than $100 million to support United Nations activities in peace and security.

The initiatives announced on May 29, 2018, by the Government of Canada through PSOPs have a value of over $2 million.
