Journal History

Established in 1990, Canadian-American Public Policy (CAPP) was created as a referred series of occasional papers focusing on contemporary issues in U.S.-Canada relations. Rapidly growing commercial ties between Canada and the U.S. have resulted in complex new policy issues in both countries concerning trade, investment, energy, the environment, resources management, cultural politics, and foreign affairs. Over the years, CAPP has published up to four large papers in the form of small books – successful and well read, it is now found in most Canadian university libraries. It is also well known in the United States as well, where it is found in many university libraries, in particular those that have hosted or host a Canadian Studies Center/Institute.
