International Security & Disarmament

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

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

  • Destruction of Weapons of Mass Destruction
    Through the Global Partnership Program, Canada is working on the destruction of chemical weapons, dismantling nuclear submarines, improving the security of nuclear and other radiological materials, redirecting former weapons scientists and promoting biological non-proliferation.

  • Landmines
    Canada’s guide to the global ban on anti-personnel mines, also known as the Ottawa Convention.

  • 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.

  • 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.
