International Security & Disarmament

  • Terrorism
    Terrorism is a serious and persistent threat to the security of Canada and its citizens.

  • Non-Proliferation and Disarmament
    Our ultimate goal is the total elimination of all nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and introducing effective controls on their means of delivery.

  • Weapons and Materials of Mass Destruction (WMD) Threat Reduction
    DFATD’s Global Partnership Program (GPP) is the main mechanism through which Canada supports international efforts through concrete projects to prevent the proliferation of weapons and materials of mass destruction (WMD) and their potential use by terrorists.

  • Transnational Crime
    Transnational organized crime fuels crime in Canada; its adverse impacts touch all Canadians.

  • A Secure Internet
    Canada believes Internet users must be confident of their safety and security online and not be subject to malicious cyber activity.

  • International Security Research and Outreach
    Foreign Affairs draws upon the expertise of academic/think-tank communities in Canada and abroad to inform and support the development of Canada's international security policy.
