Canada’s contribution to the construction of more secure world is indisputable. Through its international security policy, the country has made efforts to face the domestic, transnational, and global threats that have undermined the security of states and their respective societies around the world. This text will help academics and students who are interested in Canada’s foreign policy to understand its very real contributions to security. The work seeks to shed light on how Canadian international security policy (CISP) has been configured based on ethical liberal and strategic realist analyses, especially during the post-Cold War period. The author seeks to provide a critical survey of the different currents of thought through which this policy has been interpreted, and offers his own interpretation of Canada’s international security policies, principally during the governments of Jean Chrétien, paul martin, and stephen Harper. With the recent transformation of the Canadian electoral map, it was also incumbent to consider the possible implications of Justin trudeau’s accession to power.
