Since United Nations' resolutions or decisions are legal materials, authors need to refer to a legal referencing system, not the APA Style rules, to develop references. Please refer to "Canadian Statutes, Cases, and Legislation" for information on citing legal documents; in particular, see "United Nations" under "International Law Sources" from UBC's Legal Citation Guide for sample references for UN documents.

If you are using a technical or research report issued by the United Nations or an organization affiliated with the United Nations, you can use the APA Style rules to reference the report. Please see "How do I reference a report (i.e., grey literature) in APA Style?" for more information and an example reference and in-text citations to a UN report.
