The Canadian Global Affairs Institute is delighted to welcome Mark Norman to discuss key defence and security challenges Canada faces in the coming years including vulnerabilities in Canada-U.S. security cooperation, the utility and recapitalization of the Royal Canadian Navy, and Canada’s contribution to stability in the Indo-Pacific.

MarkNorman.jpg Vice-Admiral (ret’d) Mark Norman is a 39 year Royal Canadian Navy veteran, retiring from service in August of 2019 after a high-profile public legal challenge.  His military career saw him serve at sea domestically and internationally, command a warship, the Atlantic Fleet, the Royal Canadian Navy itself, and ultimately become the Vice-Chief of Defence Staff – the second highest rank in the Canadian Armed Forces. As a CGAI Fellow, Norman explores naval strategy, maritime affairs, defence policy and procurement with particular interests in the Arctic and the South China Sea. Full bio available here.
