The High Commission of Canada to Malta is seeking candidacies for the position of Honorary Consul of Canada in Malta

This competition is part of a global effort by the Government of Canada to renew Honorary Consuls on a regular and transparent basis.  It applies to all Honorary Consuls for Canada around the world.  It therefore does not reflect in any way on the performance of current Honorary Consuls.

The Honorary Consul of Canada in Malta acts under the authority of the High Commissioner of Canada to Malta located in Rome, Italy. He / she advises the High Commissioner and staff of the High Commission regarding regional issues that may be of interest to Canada; suggests and organizes activities or meetings to promote Canada's interests; supports the development of a network of business contacts, and business leads from those contacts, useful for Canadian business clients; provides administrative and logistical support for official visits, and is sometimes called upon to represent Canada at events. The Honorary Consul is required to maintain a storefront office in Valletta and engage an assistant to provide consular services to  Canadians visiting or residing in Malta. The remuneration of an honorary consul is modest (an honorarium of $5,000 CAD per year); the appointment is for a period of three years and may be renewable. This appointment is subject to approval of Order-in-Council.

The ideal candidate should be sound financially, have no criminal record, have a strong reputation and be well established in Malta.  He / she should have excellent relations with local authorities, and maintain a strong professional network in business and government.  The candidate should be fluent in Maltese as well as English and/or French, and have a tangible link with Canada.  The candidate should also possess or present an available option for a suitable office in which to operate the Consulate (centrally located in Valletta, accessible to consular clients during regular business hours).

Only those applicants who meet these requirements will be contacted by the selection committee for an interview or other form of assessment of the rated requirements. Note that the Government of Canada strives to respect diversity and gender balance in its appointments.

If the relationship between Canada and Malta interests you deeply and you believe that you meet the profile described above, please send a letter of interest and Curriculum vitae (in English or French) to the following email address: no later than noon on January 22nd 2018.
