Canadian-Indian relations are seldom analysed by topic, and even more rarely in a comprehensive assessment. Several interpretations of Canadian-Indian relations are updated or re-examined in this paper. The findings are that Canadian trade with India continues to diminish as a percentage of global Canadian trade; human rights in India do not absorb a disproportionate amount of the time and attention of Canadian foreign policy makers; security procedures in Canada have bothered the Indian government, but have recently been adequately addressed; Canadian-Indian relations may be of lesser importance to both governments than in the 1950s, but it is not because of the intrusion of the two superpowers and China; differences on nuclear policy widened in the mid-1980s but have narrowed more recently; and the "special relationship" between the two nations was insufficiently based on continuing historical factors and shared core values to be expected to persist indefinitely.
