2009 Annual Conference

Canada's National Strategic Relations: NATO & NORAD

Canadian leadership has long recognized that with its small population widely dispersed across the country, but clustered close to the Canada-US border, the defence of its vast territory and huge three-ocean coastline requires alliances. Canada first sheltered under the protection of the British Empire and Royal Navy. In 1940, Canada began to turn to the United States for continental security. Since the Second World War, Canadian national security has been rooted in the collective security of NATO, formed sixty years ago in April, 1949; and the bilateral/binational umbrella of NORAD, established in 1958.

The two panels, one on NATO and the other on NORAD, sought to address the future of Canada’s role in both institutions. The six panelists together will provide a wealth of academic and real-world experience and there will be plenty of time for attendees and panelists to discuss each issue.
