A vociferous critic of apartheid, Canada was strict in
its application of sanctions against South Africa until September 1993, with relations
normalising fully in 1994. President Mandela's visit to Canada in September 1998
brought the two countries close together.
As the chair of the summit of
the G8-industrialised countries in 2002, Canada played a leading role in formulating
the G8 response to NEPAD, presented as the African Action Plan.
visits are frequently taking place between South Africa and Canada, and both bilateral
as well as multilateral issues are discussed.
