Biden in Canada: What to Expect
AS/COA and the Woodrow Wilson Center Canada Institute will hold a virtual panel discussion on the visit by the U.S. president to Ottawa.
Joe Biden will travel to Canada for the first time as the U.S. president March 23 and 24 for meetings with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. This trip follows the president's recent travel to Mexico for the trilateral “Three Amigos Summit” and offers a timely opportunity to address pending bilateral issues with Canada. The two leaders will discuss competitiveness and economic matters, climate and environmental issues, energy, and security cooperation, among others.
In anticipation of the visit, please join Americas Society/Council of the Americas and the Woodrow Wilson Center for a discussion on what to anticipate, what to look for, and what it all means.
