    Summary

    The Wilson Center was established by an Act of Congress in 1968 as the national, living memorial honoring President Woodrow Wilson.

    Along with the National Gallery of Art and Kennedy Center, it is one of the three entities affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution, and is governed by its own presidentially appointed Board of Trustees. The Center provides a non-partisan policy forum for tackling issues through independent research and open dialogue that seeks to inform actionable ideas for the policy community and the public at large. It offers a bridge between the world and Washington and between critical ideas and policy practice.  Most of the Center's outreach efforts take place within the Center itself, but some of the activities take place in the region.

    The Canada Institute works to advance and improve the U.S.-Canada policy environment and provide a forum for Canadian issues in Washington. Major issues include economic competitiveness and trade, energy and environment, and shared prosperity and security within the North American region.
