Canada-U.S. Relations in the Post-9/11 Era:  A Decade of Surprising Twists and Turns


Résumé :


For almost the entire period since the end of World War II, the United States and Canada have maintained the world's largest bilateral trading relationship.  In 2010, the U.S. exported more goods to Canada with its 34 million people than to the EU-27 with its half billion people.  NAFTA, which includes these two nations plus Mexico, is also the world's preeminent free-trade area, binding together the  largest, 10th largest, and 13th largest national economies.


Rather surprisingly, the tragic events of September 11, 2001 now represent a "watershed" in the evolution of the Canada-U.S. bilateral relationship.  This presentation will analyze the significant changes which have occurred in the decade since 9/11, with special emphasis on bilateral political, economic, commercial, and strategic issues.  These post-9/11 developments are not only affecting continental unity, but also the ability of North America to compete effectively on the global stage.
