Non-Proliferation and Disarmament

Control and Elimination of Weapons of Mass Destruction

Our ultimate goal is the total elimination of all nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and introducing effective controls on their means of delivery. We also aim to promote the peaceful uses of nuclear power in a safe and secure manner. Controlling Weapons of Mass Destruction

Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (Nuclear)

Canada has a policy objective of non-proliferation, reduction and elimination of nuclear weapons. We pursue this aim persistently and energetically, consistent with our membership in NATO and NORAD and in a manner sensitive to the broader international security context. Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (Nuclear) Division

Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (non-Nuclear)

Since Canadian soldiers were among the earliest victims of chemical warfare during the First World War, Canada attaches high importance to the Chemical Weapons Convention, which comprehensively and verifiably bans an entire category of weapons of mass destruction.
