Global Canada is a non-governmental organization committed to enhancing Canada’s positive global impact and identifying global best practices that assist Canada’s own challenges.

“Canadian well-being depends upon a prosperous, well-governed world. All stakeholders—including the private sector, universities, social entrepreneurs and philanthropists—have an important role to play.”

Canada Initiative

Global Canadians are leaders, in Canada and abroad, who care about Canada’s positive role in the world.  They come from academia, journalism, civil society, the private sector and government.   They are invited to participate in Global Canada events in their private capacity, not as representatives of any organization.

Community Gatherings / Events

Gatherings of the Global Canadian community helped surface key global issues and frame Global Canada’s agenda. Generally, Global Canada events are run under Chatham House rules, typically with a public summary of proceedings.

The knowledge and insights of Global Canadians helps frame the agenda for Global Canada.   The second and third gatherings included a structured process to surface key priorities for Canadian leadership.  The fourth gathering tested and refined six high potential areas for greater Canadian leadership  (see gathering reports, below).

The Strategic Investment Case

Canada’s Global Engagement Gap: Rhetoric-Resource Gap
Pearson’s Path to Development
The Case for Caring

Future Planning Initiative

One area that was identified in our brainstorming with Canadian leaders was renewed Canadian leadership on family planning and reproductive health and rights. Over the past year Global Canada worked with other Canadian civil society actors to convene a gathering of global experts on reproductive health. The recommendations from this gathering (summarized a http://www.18millionwomen.ca/) played an important role in Canada’s 650M announcement to support women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights announced in March, 2017. Global Canada will be exploring other “proof point” opportunities with the potential of significant global impact.
