With the presidential election decided and the Biden administration beginning to plan its agenda, the Canada-United States relationship will be an important area of focus. Once one of the strongest bonds among neighbors and deeply committed allies in the world, the relationship hit low points over the past four years. Tariffs, justified as necessary for national security reasons, were put in place in spite of successfully negotiating a new trade agreement. Further, our countries have taken divergent approaches to relationships with China, European Union member states and multilateral organizations such as NATO and the World Trade Organization.
The Canada Institute and Canada-United States Law Institute welcome Canadian Ambassador to the United States, Kirsten Hillman, who will set forth her assessment on the prospects for U.S.-Canada relations following the U.S. general election. Her keynote address will be followed by a panel discussion with former diplomats, business leaders and journalists who will weigh in on the future Biden administration and the 117th Congress.
