Welcome to Canadian Pugwash Group

Education on global security, in a broad sense, is the mandate of Canadian Pugwash, carried out by sponsoring meetings, workshops and roundtables to foster informed discussion of experts, for the purpose of providing information which can be useful in the formation of government policy.

Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zones NWFZs are a stepping stone to a nuclear-weapons-free-world. They create whole regions where the deployment, use and threat of use of nuclear weapons are prohibited. They provide regional security mechanisms. They help build a global norm against nuclear weapons  and global confidence in the abolition of nuclear weapons.   [see the program]
