Public policy is at its best when it is a result of disciplined and educated dialogue between the private and public sectors. Every November, government and industry leaders of the world’s democracies gather in Halifax, Nova Scotia for three days to develop strategies to strengthen security and expand opportunities and prosperity for their citizens.
In recognition of the important contribution to mutual education on strategic issues between the public and private sectors, the Government of Canada and MEG Energy announced in August 2012 the creation of the Halifax Canada Club — a permanent body for the private sector to support the work of Halifax International Security Forum. Together, this public-private partnership of the Government of Canada and the Halifax Canada Club will ensure that the Halifax International Security Forum’s fundamental mission to build greater international security and global prosperity will continue to grow.
The purpose of the Halifax Canada Club is to ensure that the Halifax International Security Forum continues to create the productive environment that allows for significant education between government and industry that, in turn, leads to cooperation, action and results on matters of global concern. Halifax Canada Club members agree that when responsible industry and democratic governments work together, the result is enhanced public policy that leads to increased prosperity and greater international security.
The Halifax International Security Forum community, including the Halifax Canada Club, is limited to respected leaders in their fields with a declared commitment to international peace and security.
If you are interested in exploring membership opportunities, please contact Ms. Julianna Gouss at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling +1 (202) 688-2482.
