Canada – Montserrat Relations

In Montserrat, Canada has been represented by the Canadian High Commission in Barbados since 1967.

Canada's bilateral relations with Montserrat are limited due to its status as a British Overseas Territory. Overall, the relations focus primarily on trade and tourism. Canada has a cooperative partnership with Montserrat, a reflection of the broader historical relationship between Canada and the United Kingdom. As a British Overseas Territory, Montserrat’s foreign relations, defence and internal security are the responsibility of the United Kingdom.

Discussions are underway between Canada and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), which Montserrat is a member of, aimed at achieving a mutually beneficial trade agreement that provides significant economic benefits and takes into account the region's capacity constraints and vulnerabilities.
