|An Invitation from Foreign Affairs Canada||
Canadian Expatriates, its contributors, and readers have been invited by Foreign Affairs Canada
to participate in a series of eDiscussions. The current topic is “Showcasing Canadian Culture and Know-How Abroad
We are asked to consider the following questions:
What role does Canadian culture and know-how play in our foreign policy?
How might the government best promote Canadian talent and expertise in the world?
The eDiscussion runs from April 4 to May 6, 2005. At its conclusion, a summary of the discussion will be sent to senior policy planners.
The Expat admin team encourages its readers to join in the eDiscussion at the Canadian International Policy website.
