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.
Increasing Canadian and hemispheric 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 Canadian and hemispheric economic opportunity.
Addressing insecurity and advancing freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law
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 Addressing insecurity and advancing freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
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. For more information, please see Fostering lasting relationships.
Canada and the Organization of American States
The Organization of American States (OAS) and inter-American institutions are important multilateral vehicles for advancing Canada's goals of increasing mutual economic opportunity, strengthening security and institutions, and fostering lasting relationships. For more information, see Canada and the OAS.
