Transforming Global Affairs Canada

Global Affairs Canada (GAC) is implementing a multi-year organizational transformation to ensure that it is well equipped to serve Canadians in meeting the global challenges of today and of the future.

Transformation Implementation Plan (2023 to 2026) (September 2023)

Building on the recommendations made in the June 2023 Future of Diplomacy discussion paper, this evergreen, 3-year, rolling transformation plan lays out how GAC will transform itself to better deliver on its mandates in foreign affairs and consular support, trade and international assistance. Our implementation plan outlines an ambitious agenda focused on outcomes under the 5 following pillars:

  1. Our organizational culture: Strengthening our foundation
  2. Our people: Becoming an employer of choice in Canada and abroad
  3. Our global presence: Increasing our influence and engagement where it matters most
  4. Our policy: Leveraging our strengths to advance Canada’s national interests
  5. Our processes and tools: Building a high-performing organization

Future of Diplomacy: Transforming Global Affairs Canada discussion paper (June 2023)

Informed by over 80 consultations and 9,000 ideas and submissions, the June 2023 Future of Diplomacy discussion paper identified key action areas in the department’s internal organizational capacity and policy framework to transform the department.
