Shoulder to Shoulder: Canada and the UK - Partners in a Changing World

Following a successful inaugural conference examining the future of the relationship between the UK and Canada, this annual gathering will continue to explore the question of how our countries can work more closely together within an ever-changing world order.

The School of Public Policy, in partnership with the Faculty of Law and the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary, Canada, invites you attend a conference that will explore these options and flesh out practical policy routes to strengthening the Canada-UK relationship. Co-hosted with the support of Goodenough College and the British Consulate-General in Calgary, the event will feature expert panels, and encourage focused, frank and real-world debate on what is possible, and how. 

Topics include:

  • The Future of Trade and Investment: Dark Clouds Over Global Trade
  • The Future of Energy: Global Energy Transition
  • The Future of Health Care: The Role of Patients in Health Care Decisions
  • The Future of Financial Markets: The Impact of Technology
There will also be a special evening presentation on Thursday, November 28.  This event will feature a discussion, moderated by CBC Europe Correspondent Ms. Margaret Evans, between Senator Patricia Bovey and Senator Doug Black.

There are two intended outcomes of this event: Firstly, a summary report will outline key messages and provide prescriptive policy solutions for advancing Canada-UK cooperation. This document will inform ongoing and future policy discussions with policymakers and leaders. Secondly, the event will set the stage for future policy collaboration by establishing new connections between the research and practitioners in each country.

There is no fee to attend, but registration is required.
