This chapter explores how Washington has viewed the Canada–Cuba relationship since 1959. Peter McKenna and John M. Kirk highlight the United States’ displeasure and frustration with the willingness of Canadian officials to engage with their Cuban counterparts and argue that Canada has had to formulate and implement its Cuba policy by factoring into the equation the expected U.S. response and reaction to it. They find it impossible to examine Canadian–Cuban relations without first examining that relationship through the Canada–U.S. prism. This chapter explores how Canada's policy of engagement with Cuba could serve as a model for the current U.S. presidential administration.

Keywords:   Cuba, Canada, United States, policy, engagement, model, anger, frustration, relations, relationship
