The Embassy's Mission

The Canadian Embassy in France serves as the representative of the Government of Canada to the Government of France. Its role is to represent Canadian interests in France in economic and commercial and cultural fields and, in more general terms, to promote these areas of expertise and excellence to specialized contacts (media, academic, political institutions, corporations) or the general public.

An embassy also is charged with observing and informing its authorities about the situation in the host country.

Diplomats are responsible for negotiating bilateral agreements and protecting the interests of their government and its citizens.

The Canadian Embassy in France, moreover, handles procedures for anyone who wishes to apply to go to Canada, either permanently or temporarily (Immigration Division).

Finally, consular services provided to Canadians abroad include the assistance required in the event of conflict, theft or lost documents.
