Mr. Doer was appointed as Canada’s Ambassador to the United States in 2009.  During his six year tenure, he worked with leaders in both Canada and the U.S. at the state and federal level to ensure Canada’s entry into the Trans-Pacific-Partnership and helped to negotiate a presidential permit for the construction of the Detroit-Windsor Bridge.
