A leading thinker on Canada’s place in the world contends that our country’s greatest untapped resource may be the three million Canadians who don’t live here.

Entrepreneurs, educators, humanitarians: an entire province’s worth of Canadian citizens live outside Canada. Some will return, others won’t. But what they all share is the ability, and often the desire, to export Canadian values to a world sorely in need of them. And to act as ambassadors for Canada in industries and societies where diplomatic efforts find little traction. Surely a country with people as diverse as Canada’s ought to plug itself into every corner of the globe. We don’t, and sometimes not even when our expats are eager to help.

Failing to put this desire to work, contends bestselling author and longtime foreign correspondent John Stackhouse, is a grave error for a small country whose voice is getting lost behind developing nations of rapidly increasing influence. The soft power we once boasted is getting softer, but we have an unparalleled resource, if we choose to use it. To ensure Canada’s place in the world, Stackhouse argues in Planet Canada, we need this exceptional province of expats and their special claim on the twenty-first century.

Story Locale: Toronto, Ottawa, Baltimore, Silicon Valley, San Francisco

RESPECTED AND CONNECTED: John Stackhouse was the longtime editor of Report on Business, editor-in-chief of the Globe and Mail and now serves as senior VP in the office of the CEO at Royal Bank, where he reports on trends in society and business. Few authors have access to as many highly positioned Canadians as John, including those Canadians who are determining whether our voices are heard outside our own borders.

FAR-REACHING IMPLICATIONS: Charts a path for Canada of interest to anyone concerned with how we do politics and diplomacy, business, innovation and social development.

FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT: John spent decades overseas and knows of what he speaks when talking about the important work being done by Canadians outside Canada.

JOHN STACKHOUSE is a nationally bestselling author and longtime foreign correspondent for the Globe and Mail and editor of Report on Business. In 2009, he became the national newspaper’s editor-in-chief, a position he held for five years. He is a senior fellow at the C.D. Howe Institute and University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, and the author of books Out of Poverty: And Into Something More Comfortable, Timbit Nation: A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Canada and Mass Disruption:Thirty Years on the Front Lines of a Media Revolution. He presently serves as senior vice-president in the office of the CEO at Royal Bank Canada.

Multi city tour

Planet Canada is an enthralling guided tour through the uncharted lands of Canada’s ‘undeclared eleventh province.’ This missing piece of our population has an outsized influence on the shape of the world and, potentially, the fate of our country—yet it was nameless and undocumented until John Stackhouse embarked on this extraordinary journey through its workshops, concert halls, executive suites and laboratories, revealing a second Canada that is both a missed opportunity and a potential storehouse of future success.” —Doug Saunders, bestselling author of Arrival City and Maximum Canada

“John Stackhouse is an eminently wise and thoughtful observer of Canada’s place on the world’s stage. In Planet Canada, he offers a nuanced analysis of how the Canadian diaspora is capitalizing on their uniquely Canadian qualities and makes a case for us, as an evolving middle-power nation, to make the most of them.” The Right Honourable David Johnston, Canada’s 28th Governor General

“In Planet Canada, John Stackhouse motivates us to rethink the axis of our globetrotting expats, and makes a compelling case for ensuring that the right structures are in place towards achieving the desired ‘boomerang effect,’ ultimately leveraging our diverse diaspora as a fundamental Canadian asset.” —Nurjehan Mawani, distinguished Canadian civil servant and diplomat
