ABSTRACT
The article looks at the consequences and opportunities offered by globalization to the government and the citizens of Canada. It offers information on how globalization is defined in the context of the economy, society, military, and culture. It explains that the perils of globalization have affected Canada as depicted by the tension between the country's international responsibilities and domestic practices. It also notes that Canada has supported the global trend by strengthening itself to resist public anger and equipping armed forces rather than enhancing peacekeeping missions. The author also suggests that the government must prioritize human emancipation rather than market liberation to rebalance the regulatory state and global inequalities spawned by globalization.
