Embassies and Consulates

In larger countries abroad an Embassy would be found in the capital or principal city of that country and, perhaps, smaller diplomatic missions, called Consulates, located in other cities, manned by an Honorary Consul (a British national) and reporting to the main consul in the embassy.

Canadian Embassies and High Commissions are bilateral missions abroad and represent the government of Canada in foreign countries. All the major Canadian embassies and High Commissions are located in the capital of the host country.

A Canadian embassy is usually divided in certain departments with the major departments being a visa and passport section, trade and commercial section and a political section.

The Canadian Ambassador or High Commissioner is the head at the Embassy and are are typically appointed by the highest level of the Canadian government. In some countries where there is no Canadian Embassy or High Commission present you will usually find a Consulate or a Honorary Consul.
