  • Abstract   Pierre Elliott-Trudeau’s Liberal government shocked many by expressing his wish to end China’s international isolation. The new Canadian Prime Minister was determined to ensure that his country could recognize the Communist regime. Sino-Canadian rapprochement seemed impossible at a time when Canada’s closest ally, the United States was opposing the movement and China was shunned by the Western world. This thesis will explore the reasons that could explain how it is that the two governments suddenly shifted positions at such a politically sensitive moment in history. Furthermore, while existing accounts of Sino-Canadian rapprochement highlight both countries’ external relations, this thesis will explore the outcomes of such a political change. Lastly, this thesis will look into factors that keep the Canadian-Sino relation strong and factors that could potentially damage or rupture the relation.
