Canada opens full Embassy in Slovakia

The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs, announced an expansion of Canada’s diplomatic presence and capacity in Central and Eastern Europe and the Caucasus.

Canada is converting current Canadian offices in Slovakia, Estonia, and Lithuania – countries with strong and growing bilateral ties with Canada and key NATO Allies – into full embassies with resident ambassadors, and strengthening our presence at our embassy in Latvia. These changes will further enhance Canada’s engagement in the region, help counter Russia’s destabilizing activities and increase support for Operation REASSURANCE.
