André François Giroux, Consul General of Canada in Sydney

André François Giroux, Consul Général du Canada à Sydney

Welcome!

As we emerge from the tumultuous global pandemic of 2020 and focus on health, stability and economic recovery, I invite you to join the Canadian‑Australian conversation.  

My team and I take pride in providing exceptional services to Canadians, in supporting immigration and the global movement of people, in showcasing Canada’s cultural diversity and our rich Indigenous heritage. Our friendship with Australia grows stronger each day through our shared experiences. 

Together with the High Commission in Canberra and our other government partners, we provide you with a whole of Canada support in Australia; let’s work together to establish new trade and investment partnerships and opportunities, supported by rules-based international trade and guided by innovation and clean technology, for our continued sustainable prosperity.

An assignment in Sydney brings special significance in Canada’s foreign service. In 1895, the first ever international trade commissioner was posted to these shores. What an honour it is to now build upon this tradition that began over 125 years ago.  

Please reach out to me and my team with your questions, ideas and feedback to help us deliver on this vision.
