Canada has been an independent nation since the Imperial Conference of 1926.Canada has taken an active part in international relations, and has participated in all the important international organizations established to bring peace, order and stability to the family of nations.

The purpose of this study is to examine Canada’s role in the United Nations.Particular emphasis will be placed upon Canada’s part in framing the Charter and upon her policies with regard to some of the major problems confronting the General Assembly and its Committees.

The results of this investigation show Canada is one of the smaller states in the United Nations.A small state such as Canada may acquire an influence in the United Nations deliberations quite out of proportion to its political or military importance.Canada thus demonstrated her determination to have the United Nations continue to function in the manner envisaged by the Charter.
