Canada’s Role in the Korean Peninsula & the Indo-Pacific

Canada is currently working on the Indo-Pacific Strategy. The US and other major allies have released their strategies. Canada is expected to take a more active role in the Indo-Pacific region, working together with Korea and other like-minded Canadian allies and partners in the region. We have many questions, and this forum will try to find recommendations for the government of Canada on the Korean peninsula and the Indo-Pacific strategies.
