COP15 IN MONTREAL

Visa issues exclude Indigenous voices from COP15 biodiversity summit in Montreal

The COP15 conference on biodiversity loss is underway in Montreal, but hundreds of delegates from developing countries are missing out due to visa issues. This past summer, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada caused an uproar when it denied visas for multiple African delegates for the International AIDS Conference, also held in Montreal.
