Canada - Micronesia Relations

Diplomatic relations were established on March 3, 1998.

In Micronesia, Canada is represented by the High Commission of Canada in Australia.

Micronesia is represented in Canada through its embassy in Washington, D.C., U.S.A.

Canada enjoys a close and friendly relationship with the Federated States of Micronesia. Bilateral relations are cordial and enhanced by a shared membership in international organisations such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and the Food and Agriculture Organization.

Canada and the Federated States of Micronesia share interests with respect to fisheries and are both party to a number of agreements such as the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and the United Nations Fish Stocks Agreement. Canada is also a Dialogue Partner of the Pacific Islands Forum to which the Federated States of Micronesia belongs.

The Federated States of Micronesia include 607 islands regrouped under four states: Chuuk, Pohnpei, Yap and Kosrae, each represented by a star on the national flag.

With regard to development assistance, Canada supports community-based projects in Micronesia through the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives administered by the High Commission of Canada in Australia. Canada also provides long-term institutional support to multilateral and global organizations that are present in the Pacific. 

Canada's trade relations with Micronesia are managed by the Trade Commissioner Service at the Embassy of Canada in Australia.
