A member of the G7, G20, UN, WTO Commonwealth and Francophonie and security partner in NATO, NORAD and the Five Eyes group, Canada has both place and standing on the international stage. The Canadian presence aspires to be active, constructive and internationalist in support of the rules-based international order. But that order is now under stress with its main champion now embracing 'America First'. So what role for Canadas in a world in disarray?
