Happy UN Day!
UNA-Canada is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and UNA-Canada this special UN Day! Canada remains a proud founding member of the UN with leadership efforts in peacekeeping, supporting refugees, human rights and social progress.
Today, we recognize the vital work of the UN and of UNA-Canada's imperative programmes! UN75 is a day to acknowledge and amplify what we have done together and can achieve when all countries work towards the shared Global Goals.
