 The events o September 11, 2001 changed the waythe world viewed terrorism. Canada played a leadingrole in the international community’s eorts toassist Aghanistan to counter the terrorist threat, topromote global peace and security, and to ensureterrorism does not threaten Canadian interests. Buteven beore that, Canada witnessed the devastatingtragedy o the Air India bombing that killed 329people, most o them Canadians. Canada’s capacityto counter terrorist threats on all ronts has increasedsignicantly. The threat persists, however, and recentevents in Norway remind us that threats can comerom dierent directions, and that we cannot aordcomplacency in the ace o a complex and evolvingthreat.I am pleased to present this Strategy,

, which sets out Canada’sapproach to tackling this global and domestic threat. The Strategy reects the ongoing and multiacetedactivities o government departments and agenciesthat are involved in counter-terrorism. For the rsttime it sets out, in a coherent and unied ormat,how these activities contribute to the Government’sStrategy or countering terrorism. The Strategy enshrines the Government o Canada’sexisting approach to countering terrorism. Inconjunction with commitments made in theDecember 2010

, it will help to organizeand prioritize counter-terrorism initiatives andinvestments and ensure that Government activitiesaddress the risks we ace.Ensuring the saety and security o its citizens is a keypriority or this Government. This objective cannot bemet by the ederal government alone. Partnership iskey to ensuring this security. Only through workingwith our international allies, and through eectivecooperation with all levels o government andcivil society, can we achieve these goals. I rmlybelieve that it is thereore in our shared interest tounderstand the terrorist threat—and to understandthe Strategy or conronting it.
