Rights and Democracy (Canada)

Created by the Canadian Parliament in 1988, the Canadian government supplies 78% of Rights & Democracys budget. In 2009, R&D granted $10,000 each to Palestinian NGOs Al Haq and Al Mezan, through discretionary funds which have had little to no board oversight. These grants were repudiated at a January 7, 2010 board meeting. The controversy surrounding the grants led to the resignation of two board members, and some of the R&D staff demanding the resignation of the chair and other board members.
