Canada’s foreign policy is dependent upon our ability to maintain diplomatic relations with other countries. Foreign policy is about international relationships – and Canada has never been more alone.

Foreign policy is complex and as a mid-size power, Canada must understand not only what our values are, but also what is at stake in our economic, trade and foreign relationships. Canada must have a comprehensive and informed foreign policy that balances our values with sovereignty, economic security and international alliances.
