Just as Canada is increasingly at home in the world, the world is increasingly finding a home in Canada. The World in Canada confronts three questions: What are the implications of the dramatic and sustained shift in the Canadian ethnic mosaic for foreign policy? In what ways do diasporas influence Canadian foreign policy? What impact will and should Canada's demographic changes have on Canadian foreign policy in the long term? In response to these questions, contributors trace changes in Canada's demographic make-up, explore the relationship between domestic politics and Canadian foreign policy across the fields of diplomacy, development, defense and security, and immigration, and determine the extent to which Quebec's sensibilities to international issues differ from those of the rest of the country. The World in Canada argues that, under certain conditions, the motivation to pursue certain policy choices arises as much from domestic considerations as from the international conditions associated with them.
