Drawing on historical research, John Allison documents the history and development of

Educational Diplomacy in Canada. In setting the stage, he looks at its early development via the

voyages of Egerton Ryerson, the importance of education at Confederation, and developments in

the early twentieth century leading up to the 1960s. The principal focus of the book, however, takes

the reader through the 1960s, the rise of the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC),

the activities of Paul Gérin-Lajoie to extend Quebec’s jurisdiction in this area, and the federal

response. With the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Country

Education Review in 1975-1976, Canada faced new challenges in this field. In his examination

of the latter part of the 1970s, Allison analyzes the ongoing debates and discussions concerning

who oversaw education diplomacy: Ottawa and the Department of Foreign Affairs (now Global

Affairs Canada) or the provinces and CMEC. In the early 1980s, a Memorandum of Understanding

between the provinces (as represented by CMEC) and the federal government was signed. Rather

than addressing it in a dynamic fashion, this had the effect of mummifying the question. Canadian

education diplomacy is a field in which all governments could do far better. With the history of this

question in hand, leaders, governments, and Canadian educators can more effectively look anew at

this issue and search for innovative and better approaches to Canadian-style education diplomacy.
