The KAIROS Trading Rights Project connects young Canadians' lives to issues of trade and human rights.
While it has been over 60 years since Canadian John Humphrey and his colleagues completed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) establishing the foundation for international human rights, today's trading relationships often sideline human rights, the “trading rights” of the world’s peoples, for increased global trade and profits of Canada's corporations.
This project provides tools for taking action to help Canada put human rights where they belong; at the centre of all ethical and legal relationships among Canadians and with others overseas.
While the project was designed with young Canadians in mind, anyone can use the trading cards. Download them, distribute them in your community, and visit the Take Action! page on this website for more ways to get involved.
