A World in Disarray: What Role for Canada? 

May 2nd 2017
Chateau Laurier, Ottawa

Synopsis
On May 2, 2017, the Canadian Global Affairs Institute held its annual conference at the Château Laurier in Ottawa. The crowd was a mix of people from business, academia and the defence industry, as well as diplomatic guests. The panels discussed a broad range of topics, from energy to defence procurement.

CGAI president Kelly Ogle opened the program by welcoming attendees. Senior analyst David Perry then announced a new initiative by CGAI and Women in Defence & Security (WiDS), focused on publishing, networking and mentoring opportunities for WiDS scholarship applicants within the defence and international security world.

Conference discussions turned upon a relatively small number of topics: defence, Canada-U.S. relations (in both trade and defence), and a changing, more unpredictable world.
