The Canadian Delegation will be hosting all Canadian NGO representatives to a reception on Monday, March 4 at 6pm. Please see attached for the invitation. Please note that an RSVP is necessary in order to ensure that guest names are included on the security desk lists. Given space is limited, we are requesting that groups with large delegations limit the number of representatives to ensure that all groups are represented at the reception.
Canada will also be hosting a number of side events during the first week of CSW.
- Violence Committed in the Name of Honour (Monday, March 4th, Conference Room 7)
- Engaging Men and Boys in the Prevention of Violence Against Women and Girls (Tuesday, March 5th, Dag Hammarskjöld Library Auditorium, UN Headquarters)
- The Role of the Healthcare System and Doctors in Responding to Violence Against Women (Thursday, March 7th, Conference Room B)
- Every Woman Every Child; Early and Forced Marriage (Thursday, March 7, Dag Hammarskjöld Library Auditorium, UN Headquarters)
Finally, the draft agreed conclusions are now available on the UNCSW website at the following link: http://www.un.org/womenwatch/daw/csw/57sess.htm#ac
As in previous years, members of the official Canadian delegation will be providing daily briefings with Canadian NGO representatives. These briefings will be taking place daily at 1:00pm in the photo exhibition section of the Visitors Centre, Main entrance (UN Headquarters) beginning on Monday, March 4.
Please note that NGOs will require a ticket to access the side-events. These will be made available one day prior to the event and can be obtained during the daily briefings with the Canadian delegation.
We look forward to seeing you in New York
