September 2019 - Canada officially supports the UN's zero tolerance initiative and the principle of accountability.
September 12, 2018 - "Canada is a strong advocate of the full implementation of the UN’s zero tolerance policy. Our efforts to make this policy real must span the entirety of the UN system, as well as the national frameworks of troop and police contributing countries. Victims must be able to access a single, integrated, responsive and compassionate system that treats them with dignity, can investigate claims, and offers a path to justice and restitution. While the Secretary General has been unequivocal in his message that sexual exploitation and abuse is unacceptable, this message has not yet translated into concrete efforts across to all UN operations. Only solid leadership can overcome this." - Canada’s Statement to the United Nations Security Council Open Debate on Peacekeeping Operations, delivered by Ambassador Marc-André Blanchard - Ambassador Marc-André Blanchard
