CANADA – The 2024 Global Security Liberalization Symposium, organized by OEIS Investigation and Security under the leadership of Dr. Dinah Mourise and Mr. Mansour Ihab in Ontario, Canada, brought together experts to discuss pressing issues such as human/child trafficking, refugee challenges, cyber security, and education initiatives aimed at improving the well-being of vulnerable children.

Rt. Hon. Nakadama, Uganda’s Deputy Prime Minister, highlighted Uganda’s progressive refugee policy, recognized globally for its compassion.

She emphasized the government’s commitment to integrating refugees into local communities, with Uganda hosting the largest refugee population in Africa and the 4th largest globally. Refugees in Uganda are granted recognition, issued identity cards, and given the right to reside and own property in the country.

Nakadama explained, “Our approach extends beyond shelter, focusing on investing in people. Refugees are empowered to cultivate land, access education and healthcare, and contribute to the economy, promoting dignity and long-term stability.”

During sideline discussions, Ugandan officials and Canadian government representatives explored pathways for legal migration. Canada’s reputation for welcoming skilled immigrants set the stage for talks on establishing a framework enabling Ugandans to seek skilled employment in Canada.

These discussions laid the foundation for a bilateral agreement facilitating talent and expertise exchange between the two nations.
