What are the principal international trade and commerce challenges facing Canada—and how should Canada respond? CIPS convened a working group of seasoned policy experts and asked them to answer these questions. On November 17, the group will launch its report, present its recommendations, and lead a discussion of Canada’s current and future international trade and commerce policies.
Members of the CIPS International Trade and Commerce Working Group:
Ailish Campbell (co-chair)
Elaine Feldman (co-chair)
Hon. Chuck Strahl
In Fall 2014, CIPS convened four working groups of academics and policy practitioners to explore new thinking and policy options in four areas: International Security and Defence, International Development, International Trade and Commerce, and International Human Rights. The working groups grew out of the discussion at the May 2014 Ottawa Forum which focused on rethinking Canada’s international strategy. The working groups met, consulted, deliberated and drafted their reports and recommendations over the past year. CIPS is releasing the working group papers as part of its ongoing effort to promote evidence-based discussion of international policy issues in Canada.
