The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada) is a not-for-profit organization focused on Canada's relations with Asia. Our mission is to be Canada's catalyst for engagement with Asia and Asia's bridge to Canada. We do this by partnering with both the private and public sector.
A leader in research and analysis on Canada-Asia relations for over thirty years, APF Canada has developed strong ties with policy-makers, business leaders, academics, and opinion makers in Canada and throughout the Asia Pacific region.
Our current themes are:
• Promoting Trade, Investment, and Innovation
• Building Skills and Competencies
• Mobilizing Energy Assets
• Understanding Asia Now

We are funded primarily by the proceeds of an endowment from the Government of Canada and by corporate and individual donors. The affairs of APF Canada are governed by a Board of Directors.
An annual report is provided to the Minister of Foreign Affairs within four months of the end of the Foundation's fiscal year (March 31). The Minister may table a copy of the report before each House of Parliament.
The structure and activities of the Foundation are governed by the Asia-Pacific Foundation Act (1985 as amended). See the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada Act (R.S.C., 1985, c.A-13).
