Gary Doer, who stepped down last year from responsibilities as Canada's 23rd Ambassador to the United States, is this year's Eldon D. Foote Lecturer in International Business and Trade. Prior to this, he was Premier of Manitoba, for three consecutive terms (1999-2009). Currently, he is a senior business adviser at global law firm Dentons, where he works on Canada-U.S. cross-border matters. In May of this year, he became an adviser to Alberta in negotiations to end the softwood lumber dispute.

"What are our present challenges and opportunities with the new U.S. administration?" is the question Ambassador Doer will be taking up. In his discussion on prospects for NAFTA and for future trade with Canada's largest trading partner, he will be making ample reference to his own experience with the Obama administration.For more information on the Lecture and on this year's Lecturer, see the attached flyer.
