Online Event

Event description
The Canadian International Council, Global Canada and CanWaCH invite you to have your say in the development of Canada's foreign policy.

About this Event

These four events will be test runs of the deliberations that we are organizing for a microcosm of all Canadian citizens in February 2021. Extensive expert consultations throughout Fall 2020 produced policy proposals on four fundamental objectives in Canada’s foreign policy: Health, Security, Prosperity and Dignity. Participants will receive a discussion guide for their preferred topic and will be invited to deliberate with other citizens in an online session run by the Stanford University Center for Deliberative Democracy.

The CIC | The mandate of the Canadian International Council is to give citizens a voice in global affairs. Founded 92 years ago by Sir Robert Borden, CIC is a non-partisan, grassroots, and citizen-centred organization with 17 branches across Canada, from Halifax to Prince George.

CanWaCH | The Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH) is comprised of approximately 100 Canadian non-governmental organizations (NGOs), academic institutions, health professional associations and individuals partnering to improve health outcomes for women and children in more than 1,000 communities worldwide.

Global Canada | Global Canada brings together Canadians in leadership positions around the world and is based on two core beliefs. First, that Canada can best serve its interests by enhancing its global impact. Second, that Canada’s impact will be enhanced if key Canadian institutions and individuals work together in a coordinated and complementary manner, informed by a clear set of overarching principles.
