The Permanent Mission of Canada is the primary channel for communications between the Canadian government and the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
Ambassador Guillermo E. Rishchynski, Canada’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, leads the delegation. Through diplomacy, negotiation and daily monitoring of UN activities, we work to advance Canada’s interests, promote international development, security and human rights, and keep our government informed on multilateral issues.
