The Commonwealth

The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of 53 diverse, independent states, consulting through a largely informal network of governmental and non-governmental links. Today, while half the members are small states having populations of less than one million people, member states represent nearly one quarter of the world's population and one third of the membership of the United Nations. A founding member in 1931, Canada is one of the Commonwealth's strongest supporters and promoters. (Canada. Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade).
