Date of Award
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
East-West trade brought economic and political changes. During 1971-1981 relations between Canada and the USSR improved dramatically. Grain sales represented 70-90 percent of total Canada-USSR trade, but the trade never exceeded two percent. It appears that the USSR will need Canadian grain for the foreseeable future. Technology transfers remained largely restricted to the purchasing of licenses and small cooperative ventures. Canada provided (and still provides) the USSR with indirect access to United States markets and technology.
