Services provided by Canada's Consulates in Osaka and Fukuoka will be transferred to the Embassy in Tokyo

January 19, 2007

The Canadian Embassy in Tokyo today announced that the services provided by Canada's Consulates in Osaka and Fukuoka will be transferred to the Embassy in Tokyo. These Consulates will be closed to the public as of March 31, 2007.

As part of an ongoing review of how best to allocate its resources, the Government of Canada has decided to incorporate the services provided at the Consulates in Osaka and Fukuoka into the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo. The Embassy will continue to offer programs and services and to promote strong relations between Japan and Canada.

The Embassy will shortly be providing further details to registered Canadians and stakeholders on how the Consulates' services will be provided through the Embassy.

In the event of an emergency situation after March 31, Canadians in Osaka and Fukuoka can call the following numbers:

  • The Canadian Embassy in Tokyo at (011-81-3) 5412-6200.
  • The Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada Watch Office in Ottawa at (613) 996-8885 on a 24/7 basis (collect calls accepted).

For further information, Japanese media should contact the Embassy at (011-81-3) 5412-6200 and ask to speak to Media Relations.
