FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Canada’s Top-Ranked Global Affairs Think Tank Makes A New Name for Itself

 OTTAWA, ONT. -  The Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute, ranked by the University of Pennsylvania as Canada’s top global affairs think tank, announces the broadening of its mandate along with a new name after 14 years of positive national and international exposure.

Starting today, the organization will be known as the Canadian Global Affairs Institute.

“This new name better represents what the institute is and does,” said John Manley, Chair of the Institute’s Advisory Council, meeting in Ottawa today. “In today’s world of globalization and increasing interdependence, the Canadian Global Affairs Institute recognizes that there is a need to expand its scope of activities.”

Canada has a need for active and energetic foreign policy to access key markets to sell goods and ideas abroad and find sources for investment, markets and global partners to complement relations with the United States. Thus, the Canadian Global Affairs Institute is adding trade, economics, investment, development and peace building to its idea portfolio and ongoing study of key defence and foreign affairs issues.

According to David Bercuson, Program Director for the institute, “In 14 years, the institute has created a credible presence and has a solid following.” This sentiment is echoed by Michael Shaw, Chair of the Institute’s Board of Directors who asserts that “We are a known and respected think tank that has worked hard at carving out a needed niche in the domain of international policy development and engagement. We want a name that reflects our focus on all aspects of global affairs.”

Canadian Global Affairs Institute is focused on the identification and championing of Canadian interests at home and abroad. Through rigorous policy analysis, the institute promotes active and effective international involvement while helping to educate Canadians on the connection between global affairs and a prosperous and democratic Canada.
