At times like these I often get asked how Canadian authorities respond to terror attacks abroad. I can only speak to the national security side of things. NZ is a member of the 5 Eyes alliance (alongside with UK, US, Australia and Canada). So there is already good intel sharing.
But even in non-5 eyes cases, the response is mostly the same. They will cross-check the name through databases to see if there is any known Canadian connection. As this is a domestic extremist, CSIS may not have much proprietary info.
Domestic extremists are handled mostly by local and provincial authorities. There is some liaising with national security agencies. So any relevant info might be passed on, but through police.
Given growing world-wide interconnectivity of far-right movements, it is possible there are connections.
The bigger and unresolved question is that if we see more of these violent attacks, will we start seeing far-right extremists treated as a national security rather than a public order threats. #cdnnatsec
One more thing I should note: already some analytical units will summarize what is known (probably mostly unclassified at this point) for policy consumers. It will highlight any nexus with the Canadian threat environment.
Later on there will be deeper analytical assessments about the event, probably using the intel shared by NZ and any implications for Canada.
