1. (SBU) According to Deputy Director of the Department of
Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) Division for
Inter-American Relations Leonard Beaulne, Canada will give
"strong consideration" to the U.S. candidate for the
Inter-American Commission of Women's (CIM) Executive
Committee. He commented that a number of DFAIT decisions
have been on hold pending the recent Canadian election and
formation of a new government; new Foreign Minister Lawrence
Cannon took office only on October 30.

Status of Women, will likely lead the Canadian delegation to
the CIM Assembly of Delegates in Santiago, Chile from
November 10-12, Beaulne added.
