Foreign Affairs in Canada

Canadian foreign affairs encompasses a complex and wide-ranging collection of roles and responsibilities that help to define our country’s relationship with other nations on a global scale. They include the managing of diplomatic relations and international trade, efforts to promote international development and humanitarian efforts in response to various global crises, and the continued development of national security and international law.

Public Policy in Canada

The Better Canada Institute (BCI) is a start-up think tank that aims to fill the gaps in our public discourse, bridge the divide between the public, academics, and policy makers, and develop creative, evidence-based solutions to the significant problems facing our nation.

BCI is an incubator of ideas, policy, and important conversations. Each month, we will bring together top leaders and professionals from across Canada to engage with some of the most important policy conversations facing our communities and our country. We strive to make public policy in Canada accessible to all levels of interest.
