John George Diefenbaker (Prime Minister)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Diefenbaker:

1. No.

2. The Canadian government has consistently supported international endeavours for the complete eradication of slavery on a universal basis. Canada is a party to the protocol of December 7, 1953, amending the international slavery convention of September 25, 1926, to which Canada is a party. The 1953 protocol transfers the duties and functions of the League of Nations under the 1926 slavery convention to the United Nations. Canada participated also in the conference of plenipotentiaries convoked in Geneva in 1956 by the United Nations for the purpose of considering a convention supplementing the 1926 international slavery convention. The conference adopted the "supplementary convention on the abolition of slavery, the slave trade, and institutions and practices similar to slavery", which Canada signed on September 7, 1956.
