“This is a unique opportunity for Canadians of all backgrounds to get together to support shared values.

Dr. Ebadi is an internationally renowned Nobel Laureate. In 2003, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her pioneering work for democracy and human rights. She became the first Iranian and Muslim woman to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Dr. Ebadi was trained as a lawyer and became the first woman judge to preside over a legislative court in 1975.

The CIPP is an unprecedented non-partisan organization that is composed of a diverse body of organizations and individuals including prominent Canadian and international personalities promoting peace, security and development in Canada and in the international community. The organization advocates Canadian values through integration and the use of inclusive approaches to foster leadership locally, nationally and globally.
