In February 2021, seeking to revitalize their relationship, the United States and Canada signed a Roadmap for a Renewed U.S.-Canada Partnership, an agenda for increased cooperation on COVID-19, mutual prosperity, defense and security, and climate change. What progress has been made on the Roadmap in the last year? And where do American and Canadian efforts diverge?
On April 5, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire is honored to host Canada's Consul General to Boston, Rodger Cuzner, to discuss the U.S.-Canada Partnership and what it means for New Hamp-shire. Topics covered will include the recent truckers' protest in Ottawa, the current state of Canadian politics, energy, trade, tourism and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Following the Consul General's remarks, there will be a moderated Question and Answer session.
This event is presented in partnership with the Franco-American Centre of New Hampshire.
We hope you can join us for this special event, in person or online!
