Welcome to the North American Forum.

The North American Forum is a community of Canadian, Mexican and American thought leaders, whose purpose is to advance a shared vision of North America, and to contribute to improved relations among the three neighbors.

ABOUT

The purpose of the North American Forum is to create the political and conceptual basis for increased cooperation among countries and across sectors. North American Forum members are selected based on their commitment to the NAF’s goals and their ability to effect positive change.

History

While tri-national in scope and design, the agenda each year is shaped by the organizing country. The 2005 inaugural meeting in California set the goal—developing societal resilience in the face of strategic challenges, focusing on the close linkages among security, prosperity and quality of life.
