Canada-India Relationship Collapse! Justin Trudeau urges India to collaborate to ease tensions

Deterioration in India-Canada relations amid murder allegations

India-Canada relations suffered a major blow when Canada expelled a senior Indian diplomat. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau cited “credible allegations” of Indian government involvement in the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada. The investigation into the killing of Nijjar outside a Sikh cultural center in Surrey, British Columbia on June 18 has heightened tensions between the two countries.

The growing dispute has increased concerns about India-Canada trade relations. Canada ranks 18th among foreign contributors to India’s economy, contributing approximately $3.3 billion from April 2000 to March 2023. In 2022, India stood as Canada’s ninth largest trading partner, with a significant share of Canadian FDI in India in the services and infrastructure sectors.

Canadian allegations and Indian response

PM Trudeau described Nijjar’s killing as “extremely serious” and insisted on credible allegations of Indian involvement. However, India rejected these allegations as “absurd”, leading to a diplomatic rift. Despite strained diplomatic relations, experts believe Canadian investments in India will remain stable due to high returns. Canadian pension funds, particularly those in the Indian infrastructure sector, consider India an attractive investment destination.

The US State Department spokesperson stressed the importance of both India and Canada as partners. The US urged cooperation in the investigation and demanded justice and accountability.

Trudeau’s stance

Prime Minister Trudeau underlined the importance of upholding the rule of law and the safety of Canadians, requesting India’s cooperation in uncovering the truth behind the allegations. Although the ongoing dispute has created diplomatic tensions, it is unlikely to have an immediate impact on investment relations between the two countries. The focus remains on solving allegations and ensuring justice.
