The West Asia Group promotes knowledge exchange, international cooperation, trade, and investment between Canada and West Asian countries such as Turkey, Arab countries, and Iran. The Group's main aim is to build deep links between these two critical regions of the world by raising their level of interaction, understanding, and cooperation in key arenas.

The hallmarks of the West Asia Group's work are its original research, and the potency of the networks it builds across industry, government, NGO, and educational sectors. Our knowledge production and dissemination activities, and the networks of cooperation we design, give our collaborators and partners key tools to succeed, while serving the common good.

Given its aim of building deeper links between North America and West Asia, The West Asia Group is focused on harnessing the potential of West Asian communities in North America, tapping into the vast human capital and potential of Arab, Turkish, and Iranian diaspora communities in Canada, the U.S., Europe, and beyond.
