Canada-Fiji Relations

In Fiji, Canada is represented by the High Commission of Canada in New Zealand. The Canadian Consulate in Nadi provides passport and citizenship application forms and emergency consular assistance.

Fiji is represented in Canada by a High Commission in Washington, D.C., U.S.A.

Bilateral relations: While the relationship between Canada and Fiji is warm and long-standing, bilateral relations were strained during the years of military rule (2006-2014). During this period, the Government of Canada’s engagement policy with the Government of Fiji was limited to working-level contacts. Canada welcomed Fiji’s September 2014 elections as a positive step. Canada and Fiji have shared memberships in international organisations such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and the World Health Organisation. Canada is also a Dialogue Partner of the Pacific Islands Forum to which Fiji belongs.

With regard to development assistance, Canada supports small scale, community-based projects in Fiji through the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) administered by the High Commission of Canada in New Zealand. Canada has supported several CFLI projects in Fiji in recent years, the most recent being an initiative to raise awareness of human trafficking in 2014-2015.

Canada's trade relations with Fiji are managed by the Trade Commissioner Service, New Zealand. Tourism, sugar and fisheries are the primary economic activities in Fiji.
