Providing clear, specific, and actionable policy advice to business and government
What We Do
We provide clear, specific, and actionable policy advice and business intelligence based on sound research and analysis. Our work includes field and desk research, big data and statistical analysis, surveys and polling, events and networking, timely media commentary, and a regular Asia Watch newsletter – all publicly accessible on our website.
Currently, APF Canada is producing research and developing programs on the following themes:
May 18: Japan, the Indo-Pacific and Lessons for North America: Economic Security, Interdependence, and Supply Chain Resilience
May 31: Doing Business in Australia and New Zealand: Opportunities for B.C. Businesses and Investors Under the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP)
June 7: Summary Doing Business in Japan: Opportunities for B.C. Businesses and Investors Under the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP)
APF Canada also maintains several formal affiliations to help strengthen Canada's relations across the Pacific.
The Foundation issues competitive calls for proposals linked to our thematic priorities.
We also select recent Masters or PhD graduates to work and conduct research in Vancouver as Post-Graduate Research Scholars.
Media Fellowships are also offered to Canadian journalists to travel to Asia to cover specific stories and to conduct outreach on the topic upon their return to Canada.
