Canada-Bahrain Relations

Canada is represented by the Embassy of Canada in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Bahrain is represented in Canada by the Embassy in Washington, D.C., U.S.A.

Canada maintains cordial and growing relations with Bahrain.

Canada commended King Hamad following the establishment of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry, which was tasked with investigating and reporting on the events that took place in Bahrain from February 2011, and the consequences of those events. We encourage implementation of all recommendations contained in the Commission’s final report published in November 2011.

While Canada’s commercial relationship with Bahrain is modest, there are opportunities for growth. Canada concluded negotiations on Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreements (FIPA) with Bahrain in January 2010. Bahrain is also part of the Gulf Cooperation Council area, which is considered a priority market for Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada.

Canada and Bahrain share common views on the importance of education and Canada welcomes each year many Bahraini students. Inter-university agreements further strengthen the ties between our countries.

The Canadian International Development Agency does not maintain a bilateral assistance program with Bahrain.
