Welcome to Canadian Pugwash Group
Education on global security, in a broad sense, is the mandate of Canadian Pugwash, carried out by sponsoring meetings, workshops and roundtables to foster informed discussion of experts, for the purpose of providing information which can be useful in the formation of government policy.
Canadian Pugwash conference “The Way Forward to a World Free of Nuclear Weapons” July 9-11, 2015, at the National Historic Site of Thinkers’ Lodge in Pugwash, Nova Scotia, featured leading Canadian and American experts. The conference examined the challenges posed by the current international security context and ideas for making real progress on the road to a world without nuclear weapons.
