Heads of Missions

Over the years one of the most common requests for information about the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade has been to identify those who have served as heads of Canadian posts abroad and their dates of service. The Department's Historical Section has, therefore, created the ‘Heads of Missions’ database for use as a reference guide by employees and by those in the academic community who have an interest in Canada's international relations. This dataset includes names of heads of missions abroad, diplomatic staff located in missions and some logistic information as published on DFATD's Internet site.
