Geneva, 16 August 1999
Canada has a long-standing tradition of providing assistance to the victims of both human-caused and natural disasters. For Canadians, humanitarian assistance is less an act of charity than it is an expression of our collective values, culture and vision of how a community of nations can cooperate during periods of crisis. Canada's humanitarian assistance is seen as an important and visible manifestation of our country's investment in global peace and human security.
