Latin America and the Caribbean constitute a starting point for Canada’s connections to the world beyond the United States, with much of Canada’s diplomacy, trade, investments, and a significant part of our migratory flows linked to that region.

The workshop panels will explore the historical determinants of Canada’s role in the Americas, bilateral and multilateral foreign policy relations, trade and investment relations, security issues, extractive industries, migration, human rights and democracy, as well as future challenges. The workshop will include the participation of more than 40 panelists from Latin America, the United States and Canada.

This conference is organized as part of the Faculty of Public Affairs Research Month.
