Canada's World

February 28, 2007 - May 06, 2011

Canada’s World was a non-partisan initiative housed at Simon Fraser University's Centre for Dialogue and designed to articulate a new vision for Canada’s role in the world. The project was the most comprehensive citizen’s consultation on Canadian foreign policy in history, engaging more than 10,000 Canadians in-person and 200,000 Canadians on-line. It was implemented in collaboration with 15 post-secondary institutions and 40 non-profit organizations.
