Conversations with Canadian Leaders: Canada as an Asian Pacific Nation


To engage Canadians on Canada-Asia issues, the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada launched the National Conversation on Asia (NCA), a Canada-wide initiative focused on public education, policy development, and community outreach. As part of this initiative, the Public Policy Forum conducted 80 in-depth, face-to-face interviews and discussions with senior leaders across sectors to facilitate a high-level dialogue on Canada as an Asia Pacific nation. Interview and discussion questions focused on general impressions of Canada-Asia relations, as well as the challenges and opportunities in building and strengthening partnerships in the Asia Pacific region. All contributions have been invaluable to our research and we hope that the outcomes and implications of this project will help to inform future decision-making across all sectors in Canada.
