The Canadian Museums Association (CMA) supports the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Trade’s key recommendations that identifies cultural diplomacy as a pillar of Canada’s foreign policy.

“The CMA applauds these recommendations and is well positioned to assist the Canadian government as it explores International opportunities for effective and collaborative ventures” says Dr. Vanda Vitali, CMA’s Executive Director. “The CMA believe that culture and environment have to inform every action that Canada takes. We look forward to working with and contributing to the efforts made by Global Affairs Canada and others as they coordinate and deliver on this important cultural diplomacy strategy.”
