Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Canada in Costa Rica, Honduras and Nicaragua

It is an honour and a privilege to represent Canada in Costa Rica, Honduras and Nicaragua.

Costa Rica is a strong ally in the hemisphere. Canada and Costa Rica both view the respect for human rights, the rule of law and the strength of democratic institutions as essential to good governance. Anchored by the 2002 Free Trade Agreement, the Canada–Costa Rica partnership is made stronger by building ever closer trade and investment links.

Canada and Honduras have enjoyed a positive relationship since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1961. Canada’s largest and most important development program in the Americas America is in Honduras  It is a hallmark of the expanding scope of bilateral relations between our two nations. Underscored by the entry into force of the 2014 Canada Honduras Free Trade Agreement, trade and investment also continues to grow.
