The Voice of Reason

We produce peer-reviewed, evidence-based research and analysis on Canadian defence and international security. The CDA Institute brings together academia, government, and industry into the conversation through our flagship Expert Series and Ottawa Conference on Security & Defence. We are a community of Canadians who care about our nation’s role in the world, and who are committed to a principled and rational approach to Canada’s foreign policy.  

Shaping Tomorrow’s Security & Defence Leaders

Through our education programmes, graduate conferences, internships, and mentorship opportunities, we are building the skill sets and expertise of the next generation of Canadian security and defence leaders.

Recognizing Excellence

We annually recognize inspiring Canadians through our Awards Program, which includes the Vimy Award, the Ross Munro Media Award, and the Nichola Goddard “Game Changer” Award.

Be sure to subscribe to our newsletters to learn more about the CDA Institute, research, publications and events.
