EQUAL RIGHTS COALITION

2018-19 CO-CHAIRS CANADA AND CHILE

``As Canadians, we share no greater task than to make sure our protection of human rights is ever-advancing.`` - PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA, JUSTIN TRUDEAU

Canada and Chile are co-chairs of the ERC – the first-ever intergovernmental coalition dedicated to the protection of the rights of LGBTI people around the world. Canada and Chile are working together to organize this flagship event to provide an opportunity for gathering knowledge, building networks and setting norms in support of the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI ) people around the world.

Conference Overview

August 6 – 8, 2018 | Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The ERC Global Conference is the only global conference of its kind in which states, development cooperation agencies, civil society, UN agencies, private donors, and other relevant stakeholders come together with a shared commitment to advance LGBTI human rights and inclusive development.

Building on the conferences in Montevideo (2016), Washington (2014), Berlin (2013), and Stockholm (2011), the Vancouver conference will continue to provide opportunities for high-level diplomatic engagement, working-level collaboration, and network-building among ERC stakeholders.

This year’s conference will focus on the following three objectives:

Building knowledge (on global trends, gaps, and best practices in advancing LGBTI human rights and inclusive development)

Building networks (across states, development cooperation agencies, CSOs, international organisations, and other stakeholders)

Building norms (that help to further advance LGBTI human rights and inclusive development through diplomacy and development coordination)
