Canada’s engagement with the Indo-Pacific

This presentation, hosted in collaboration with the Forrest Research Foundation, will be an opportunity to hear Canada's High Commissioner to Australia, H.E. Mr Mark Glauser, reflect on Canada's engagement in the Indo-Pacific, and its relationship with Australia, one year after the launch of its Indo-Pacific strategy.

The Indo-Pacific is rapidly becoming the global centre of economic dynamism and strategic challenge. Every issue that matters to Canadians—including national security, economic prosperity, respect for international law, democratic values, public health, protecting the environment, the rights of women and girls, and human rights—will be shaped by the relationships Canada and its allies and partners have with Indo-Pacific countries.


Australia is a key partner with Canada in the Indo-Pacific. It is also a Five Eyes ally. This relationship is a key part of Canada's strategic objectives.

The Australian Institute of International Affairs for WA

The Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) is an independent, non-profit organisation seeking to promote interest in and understanding of international affairs in Australia.

The WA Branch of the AIIA was founded in 1947 by Professor Fred Alexander of the University of WA, who became its first President. Like the earlier established branches in the other Australian states, the WA Branch was modelled on the British Royal Institute of International Affairs, based at Chatham House in London.

The WA Branch has maintained a steady membership, including many prominent West Australian and national leaders. Successive State Governors have served as the Branch's Official Visitor. The aim of the institute is to be an independent and non-political body that facilitates and encourages the study and debate of international questions.

Membership fees includes a subscription to The Australian Journal of International Affairs as well as two tickets at the member price to each of our our monthly meetings where you will learn about developments in international affairs of concern to the people of Western Australia. We rely on membership contributions and sponsorship of special events to keep our association running: we receive no core funding from government.
