Welcome to the NATO Association.
The NATO Association of Canada is a Non-Governmental Organization founded in 1966 to promote knowledge and understanding of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Canada.
The NAOC is a member of the Atlantic Treaty Association (ATA) headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, which coordinates some forty similar organizations in other NATO member and Partners for Peace nations.
Our vision is to promote the critical importance in cultural, security and economic terms of the transatlantic relationship among Canada, the United States and the nations of Europe and be the premier sponsor and supporter of NATO in Canada.
The NATO Association of Canada has established several programs to address issues that we believe to be important and which deserve attention. These programs will feature articles, be the focus of our round tables, and will feature in discussions during our conferences. In these fields the NATO Association of Canada is proud to have developed sustained conversation in areas that have had limited or disjointed coverage in the past.
The NATO Association of Canada currently publishes articles under 10 programs, at least once a week:
In addition, to promote youth participation, we have created two avenues of interaction: a series of presentations our staff give in high school history and civics classes, and student essay contests giving entrants the opportunity for their work to be published online on this site.
