The Canada Institute, an integral program of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, was founded in 2001 to increase awareness and knowledge about Canada and Canada-U.S. relations among U.S. policymakers and opinion leaders. The Institute currently stands as the only nonpartisan public policy forum in Washington, D.C., the United States—and even Canada—dedicated exclusively to exploring emerging policy issues in one of the most successful and unique bilateral relationships in the world.   The Canada Institute’s programming strives to foster new thinking among government officials, academics, industry, and other key stakeholders in three core areas: border security, trade, and energy and the environment. The Canada Institute is committed to building and strengthening the Canada-U.S. relationship by advancing dialogue and the free flow of ideas on key bilateral issues to help policymakers make more informed policy decisions when addressing shared economic, environmental, and security challenges.
