The Canada Institute 


The Canada Institute is based in Washington, DC and is the only public policy forum in the world dedicated to the full spectrum of Canada-U.S. issues. Founded in 2001, the Canada Institute is funded by private sector donations and a modest Congressional appropriation.  The Institute works in close partnership with the Canadian Embassy in Washington to promote awareness and understanding of Canada-U.S. issues, especially among U.S. legislators.  The Canada Institute Advisory Board Co-Chairs are Hon. David Jacobson, Hon. Gary Doer, and Hugh MacKinnon.
On issues ranging from trade and supply chains to security, borders, energy, health and the environment, the Canada Institute builds and sustains the dialogue on key Canada-U.S. concerns. Each year, the Institute hosts dozens of public seminars, holds student and business group briefings, funds Canadian scholars and scholarship, and produces research reports on important bilateral issues. All programming and publications are provided free of charge.
The Canada Institute is one of the most important resources of the Wilson Center. Established by the U.S. Congress, the Wilson Center provides a trusted non-partisan platform, producing actionable ideas that bridge the gap between scholarship and policy. The Wilson Center was ranked this year as one of the top five think tanks in the United States and one of the top ten worldwide.
The Wilson Award is a cornerstone of our mission. Given to a select group of leaders, it celebrates those who show extraordinary commitment to service in the spirit of Woodrow Wilson. Previous honorees include the Honorable Henry A. Kissinger; Hillary Rodham Clinton; the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, and Mr. Stephen Lewis, to name a few.
