    About Us

    The High Commission for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago based in Ottawa, Canada’s Federal Capital has the responsibility in Canada for the conduct of the relations between the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago and the Government of Canada. The High Commission is headed by a High Commissioner who is the official representative of the President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to Canada, and is appointed by the President on the advice of the Prime Minister and Head of Government.
