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.

APF Canada is dedicated to strengthening ties between Canada and Asia with a focus on seven thematic areas:

Our research provides high-quality, relevant, and timely information, insights, and perspectives on Canada-Asia relations. Providing policy considerations and business intelligence for stakeholders across the Asia Pacific, our work includes Reports, Policy Briefs, Case Studies, Dispatches, Digital Media, and a regular Asia Watch newsletter that together support these thematic areas.

APF Canada is home to Canada’s top thinkers and advisors on Canada-Asia relations, including our experienced executive team, in-house research staff, Distinguished Fellows, and other network partners. If you need a subject matter expert to speak at your next conference or event, or if you are interested in a tailored briefing or Asia Competency training, please get in touch.
