Canadian Development Report 2000

Published: January 1, 2000

A review of Canadian foreign policy toward developing countries at the turn of the century, the Canadian Development Report 2000 examines whether Canada’s actions have lived up to its rhetoric in the areas of trade, human security, development assistance, and debt relief. It also shows how support seems to be building in Canada for a more proactive foreign policy.

In a special guest essay, Stephen Lewis, former Deputy Executive Director of UNICEF and former Canadian Ambassador to the UN, exposes the failings of the multilateral system. He challenges Canada to assume a leadership role in the fight against poverty and to “make ourselves the most valued friend of the full constellation of developing countries.”

The fourth volume in The North-South Institute’s annual series, CDR 2000 also includes more than 40 pages of up-to-date statistical data and analysis of the flow of resources, goods, services, and people between Canada and the developing world.
