The Canadian government has confirmed that since October 7th, they have approved new military contracts to Israel.1 This admission comes after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled in favour of emergency measures that Israel must take to prevent genocide in Gaza, including the killing and injuring of Palestinian civilians.2

While Canada joined the international community at the UN voting in favour of a ceasefire, in practice, Canada continues to supply weapons – millions of dollars worth – to Israel.3 Weapons that are being used to maim and kill tens of thousands of innocent civilians in Gaza.

As a signatory of the genocide convention, Canada’s failure to restrict military exports to Israel may amount to complicity in genocidal acts. With the scale of destruction reaching horrifying heights in Gaza, we need to pile on the pressure now for the federal government to put a stop to Canada’s arms trade with Israel – to realize a full and permanent ceasefire and prevent any further loss of life.

Will you call on your MP for an immediate arms embargo on Israel?


Talking Points:
  • My name is {first name} and I’m calling with concern about the situation in Gaza.
  • The ICJ delivered a ruling that Israel’s actions in Gaza could plausibly be genocidal. The ruling also issued emergency actions, including demanding that Israel take all measures within its power to prevent genocide, and to increase humanitarian aid.
  • As a signatory of the Genocide Convention of 1948, Canada has an obligation to do everything possible to prevent genocide. I am deeply concerned that Canada is complicit in aiding or assisting in genocide and urge you to take immediate action to uphold international law.
  • I call on you to speak up in favour of imposing an arms embargo on military exports to Israel and providing humanitarian aid.
