Fresh from last year's elections, new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visits Washington March 10 for bilateral discussions with President Barack Obama and other senior government officials. There is much to discuss: Canada is the top trading partner of the United States, plus its top energy supplier, and shares the longest undefended border in the world with the United States. Both nations are now in the process of reviewing and discussing ratification of the recently concluded Trans-Pacific Partnership. At the same time, Ottawa is in the process of determining its broader approach to trade policy issues with the United States, Asia, Europe, and Latin America.

Council of the Americas will hold a public discussion on Canada’s evolving trade policy, where it is, where it’s headed, and what we can expect.


  • Ambassador Alan Wolff, Senior Counsel, International Trade Practice, Dentons; Chairman, National Foreign Trade Council
