This report provides recommendations for how Canadian government, education and private sector can work to improve the Asia competence of Canada's citizens. As Asia continues to rise in terms of global prominence, experience, expertise and education the region is of critical importance to Canadians. The report assesses what is being done to grow Asia competence in Canada, where it is falling short, and how it can improve its Asia competence initiatives. This report was released jointly by the Munk School of Global Affairs and the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada as part of the National Conversation on Asia.
