ABSTRACT
For most of Prime Minister Jean Chrétien's ten years in office, his approach toward revolutionary Cuba was predicated on a policy of constructive engagement, or principled pragmatism. The piece begins by outlining the nature and extent of Canada-Cuba engagement, exchange, and dialogue during the Chrétien period. The article will then identify what worked in terms of bilateral relations and what did not, and in light of the Chrétien highs and lows, it will highlight the key lessons learned and explain why. Lastly, it will conclude with a series of policy recommendations for Canadian governments (current v and future) to contemplate if Ottawa-especially given the changing United States-Cuba dynamic-hopes to enhance and strengthen ties with a post-Fidel Cuba.
