Canada’s response to Middle East crises and violent extremism
Canada remains deeply committed to responding to the needs of conflict-affected people in Iraq, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon and remains engaged in the fight against Daesh. Our plan is comprehensive, integrated, and sustained involving the pursuit of military, diplomatic, stabilization, and, separately, humanitarian and development lines of effort to invest in all aspects of a durable solution.
Prime Minister sets new course to address crises in Iraq and Syria and impacts on the region
“Our new policy in Iraq, Syria and the surrounding region reflects what Canada is all about: defending our interests alongside our allies, and working constructively with local partners to build real solutions that will last. We will work with allies to defeat ISIL and the terrorist threat it represents. At the same time, we will help address the needs of millions of vulnerable people while helping lay the foundations for improved governance, economic growth and longer-term stability.”
The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
