The Simons Foundation Canada congratulates participating States, the United Nations, ICAN, the International Red Cross and all fellow nuclear abolitionists for their success in achieving the Entry into Force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). Entry into Force will occur in 90 days following the recent 50th ratification of the Treaty and be legally binding on all states that join the Treaty. This is an essential and long overdue first step to the total elimination of nuclear weapons.
