Embassy of Canada to Libya
The February, 2011 Revolution led to Libya’s first democratic government and a new era in Canada-Libya relations. At this critical juncture in Libya’s history, Canada encourages Libyans to come together to end current divisions and address the country’s numerous security, humanitarian and economic challenges. Canada remains committed to assisting Libyans to do so, including help to promote human rights and rule of law.
“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.”
