Canada has only produced one document outlining a comprehensive national security strategy, in 2004.

Open Canada host and CIC president Ben Rowswell was on the team of experts that designed it. His guest Wesley Wark, a national security expert and senior fellow at the Centre for International Governance (CIGI), recently completed a year-long proposal on how to revise the strategy – and to outline the important role citizens have to play.
