China poses security threat to Canada: report

China poses a significant national security cyber threat to Canada and uses businesspeople and mobilizes Chinese students in Canada to influence politics, says a new report to Parliament.

“China is known globally for its efforts to influence Chinese communities and the politics of other countries,” said the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians document released Tuesday, April 9. “The Chinese government has a number of official organizations that try to influence Chinese communities and politicians to adopt pro-China positions, most prominently the United Front Work Department.”

The report is the first to Parliament from a cross-party committee of MPs offering a broad look at Canada’s various intelligence services.
