International Delegate's Day History

International Delegate's Day is dedicated to acknowledging the role and hard work of international, multilateral, regional and national delegates. It focuses particularly on their commitment towards peaceful cooperation, international diplomacy and negotiations often under the aegis of the United Nations (UN). This is an important recognition of their steadfast dedication to representing their nations and people's interests at various levels of global governance, often in challenging circumstances, facilitating dialogues, building consensus, and working towards peace and sustainable development.

International Delegate's Day was first proclaimed by a United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution in 2019, acknowledging the role delegates play in realizing the purposes and principles of the UN. For Canadians, this day symbolizes the country's continued commitment to international diplomacy, peacekeeping, and promoting global standards of human rights, gender equality and environmental sustainability. Canada has an illustrious history of active participation in multilateral forums, including key contributions towards drafting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the historic Ottawa Treaty on Anti-Personnel Landmines, furthering the significance of International Delegate's Day for Canadians.

In Canada, International Delegate's Day is typically observed by acknowledging and celebrating the contributions of Canadian delegates to international diplomacy and cooperation. Various activities such as panel discussions, workshops, and outreach campaigns are conducted to raise awareness about the work and impact of delegates. Furthermore, messages of appreciation are shared through social media platforms, promoting respect and value for the work of delegates. International Delegate's Day is annually on the 25th of April, further strengthening its dedication to global dialogue and multilateral cooperation.
