Embassy of Canada to Libya in Tripoli

“Due to the deteriorating security environment in Libya, the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development has decided to temporarily suspend its operations at its office in Tripoli. We have not suspended diplomatic relations with Libya.

The Canadian Embassy in Libya is currently closed, but will continue to operate remotely from the Canadian Embassy in Tunisia until conditions allow for its reopening.

This is a temporary measure and has no relation to our continuing and long-standing diplomatic relations with Libya.

Canada remains committed to support the Libyan people in their efforts to build a stable and secure democracy.”

“Canadian citizens in Libya should contact the Embassy of Canada in Tunis, Tunisia at (216) 70-010-200 for emergency consular assistance.

In Canada, they should contact the 24/7 Emergency Watch and Response Centre in Ottawa at 613-996-8885 (collect calls accepted) or by emailing sos@international.gc.ca.”
