Over the past several years, attention paid to the issue of antimicrobial resistance has grown significantly, both by international organizations (WHO, FAO, G20, G7) and Canadian allies (notably United States, UK and EU). In Canada, government officials have been engaged in various international forums on AMR, while AMR stakeholders outside of government have focused attention within domestic forums. At the international level, there tends to be an emphasis on new solutions for tackling AMR, in areas that include stewardship, economic incentives and research. However, there is a gap in translating those ideas to suit a Canadian context. As such, there may be benefit to supporting engagement between Canadian stakeholders in AMR and AMR experts from international organizations and other nations. It is worth noting that Canada will assume chair for G7 in 2018 and AMR has served as a priority topic for the G7 in recent years. For this reason, bridging ties between AMR leaders at the international level and those in Canada could enhance Canada’s capacity to demonstrate international leadership on the issue in the coming years.
