Canada and the Americas

Canada is a country of the Americas and, as such, we place great value in fostering lasting and meaningful relationships with countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. More than 40 federal partners are advancing the three goals and 16 objectives of Canada’s Strategy for Engagement in the Americas. Canada’s whole-of-government approach envisions a more prosperous, secure and democratic hemisphere.

Sharing Successes

A sample of the many successful projects and activities undertaken by the Government of Canada in the Americas.

Mutual Economic Opportunity

Latin America and the Caribbean is an economically dynamic region that is experiencing significant economic growth. Increasing commercial and investment ties with the region is supporting and enhancing prosperity and sustainable growth in the Americas. For more information, please see Increasing mutual economic opportunity.

Freedom, Democracy, Human Rights

Canada is concerned with increasing insecurity in many parts of the Americas and its negative effects on citizens in the region. Insecurity in the Americas threatens stability, democracy and prosperity in the hemisphere and at the same time has a direct impact on Canadians. For more information, please see Strengthening Security and Institutions.

Fostering Lasting Relationships

Canada places great value on building and nurturing relationships with partners in the Americas. People-to-people relationships across government, the private sector, civil society and academia are fundamental to achieving long-term results.
