Abstract

This thesis presents an analysis of Canadian socioeconomic activity in the Caribbean and Latin America, with the objective of defining Canada's role In the world system. Analytically, this study aims at discerning the broader implications of the trade relations, patterns of oapital movement and state activities relative to the societal formations in question.

Outlining the specific nature of Canada's integration into the world economy, it is argued that, in essence, Canada's external role within the world system is to develop and maintain economic structures and relations in certain semi-indus- trialized and underdeveloped countries, in conformity with the changing requirements of dominant capitalist interests based in the advanced industrialized countries.
