The article analyses Canada’s positions on key global governance issues and possible implications for the country’s G20 participation. The analysis has been carried out on the basis of G20 documents and data from national sources (laws, national programs, leaders’ statements etc).

The author notes the systemic approach of Canadian government in addressing issues across a wide range of policy areas. Sustainable development and environment preservation considerations are integrated into the government’s economic agenda. Infrastructure projects are being implemented based on their impact on both socio-economic development and environment. Canadian border policy also favors economic growth by attracting high-skilled labor force from all over the world. Canada, as a long-term supporter of the international development assistance efforts, could provide valuable contribution to developing the G20 agenda in this area.

Given the priorities of Canada’s development and the government’s stance on major international issues, international development assistance, green growth and structural reforms can be regarded as issues of high importance for the country within the G20 agenda.

The study is implemented within the project of the Russian International Affairs Council and International Organizations Research Institute National Research University Higher School of Economics “Enhancing Effectiveness of Russia’s Participation in G20, G8 and BRICS”.
