Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP)


“The mandate of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada is to manage Canada's diplomatic and consular relations and to encourage the country's international trade. This includes:

ensuring that Canada's foreign policy reflects true Canadian values and advances Canada's national interests;

strengthening rules-based trading arrangements and expanding free and fair market access at bilateral, regional and global levels; and

working with a range of partners inside and outside government to achieve increased economic opportunity and enhanced security for Canada and for Canadians at home and abroad.”

About ELAP

“In 2009, Prime Minister Harper announced the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP) to support the development of human capital and the next generation of leaders in the Americas while strengthening the linkages between postsecondary institutions in Canada and Latin America and the Caribbean.

The scholarships also advance Canada’s objectives for the Americas: democratic governance, peace and security and prosperity in the region.

ELAP Scholarships provide students with short-term exchange opportunities for study or research at the college, undergraduate and graduate levels. As part of the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program, select graduate-level students will be invited to participate in a study tour focused on Canadian democratic governance and civil society or other key priority areas.”
