This project examines how Canada’s transatlantic relationship with various partners in Europe is affected by Brexit — the process of negotiating and implementing the withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU). The project focuses on four aspects of the Canada-Europe relationship: (a) trade and investment; (b) security and defence; (c) environment and energy; as well (d) as political relations and identities.

The study is jointly conducted by four Canadian scholars of European affairs and Canada-Europe relations: Achim Hurrelmann (Carleton University, principal investigator), Petra Dolata (University of Calgary), Patrick Leblond (University of Ottawa) and Frédéric Mérand (Université de Montréal). The project is funded for a five-year period (2019-2024) through an Insight Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
