Begin Shaping the Future of Canadian Foreign Policy

May 21, 2020

We want to be at the forefront of the conversation on the future direction on Canadian foreign policy and the reform of the international system in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, but more importantly, we want you to be a part of that conversation. The “Global Ambition Project” is the CIC’s new ambitious initiative which will involve a grassroots mobilisation of active citizens like yourself. It will be comprised of three parts: the relaunch of the international affairs publication, OpenCanada, as an interactive website and newsletter on Canadian foreign policy; the creation of a national commission of experts to inform the reform agenda; and a deliberative democracy exercise comprised of Canadians from coast to coast to coast to learn about their priorities for Canadian foreign policy going forward.

While we are just at the beginning of this massive undertaking, we want you, as a valued member of the CIC, to get involved right from the outset – and that starts with a name. We want to find the ideal name to capture the scope and ambition of this project, and we want your opinion on what that name should be. Using a platform called Klaxoon, you can select your preferred name by clicking on the link below and following the simple instructions on how to participate. We look forward to your participation in what is just the first step in this ambitious new endeavour.
