When Justin Trudeau became Canada’s 23rd prime minister in 2015, he boldly announced to the world: “Canada is back.” Based on the initial responses of Canadians at home and leaders abroad, his message was well received. But what did it really mean? Would Canada reinvest in its foreign service, its international development officials, or its military? Would Ottawa pursue international leadership on pressing global issues? Had Canada ever left in the first place?
The last seven years have presented the Trudeau government with a variety of entirely unexpected foreign policy challenges: from the election of Donald Trump, to the Covid-19 pandemic, to Russia’s attack on Ukraine. How successful were Canada’s responses? And why did Ottawa respond in the ways that it did?
This lecture is intended to introduce the broad scope of Canadian foreign policy. It begins by exploring what are known as critical national interests and then considers those interests against a series of contemporary issues.
