Abstract
The study aims to give an introduction to the subject of Canadian strategic interests in Latin America in the light of the major events in recent months which have increased this country's connections with Latin America. While the emphasis in the paper is on strategic issues, the nature of Canada's interests in the region make the definition of the term "strategic" a wide one involving stability in the region and other strictly political issues, trade and investment, and immigration as well as the more traditional security concerns such as nuclear proliferation, the Panama Canal, regional security arrangements, peacekeeping, arms industries and resources. Given its increasing importance in security discussions in the recent past, a chapter will also discuss trends related to the drug trade and national security.
