“Canada has been an enthusiastic supporter of the RIAL since its creation. Over the years, the RIAL has developed into an agile mechanism for tangible cooperation and knowledge sharing at the hemispheric level. We should all be very proud of the RIAL’s accomplishments to-date. With the support and active participation of each and every member state, the RIAL will be able to continue to facilitate the development of institutional capacity and the effective enforcement of labour legislation in the years to come. Our thanks go to the Technical Secretariat for its diligent coordination of the work of the RIAL over the past decade.”
