Heads of Missions

Heads of Missions Over the years one of the most common requests for information about Global Affairs Canada has been to identify those who have served as heads of Canadian posts abroad and their dates of service. Therefore, the Department's Historical Section created the ‘Heads of Posts’ list, later transformed into a database, for use as a reference guide by employees and by those in the academic community and the general public who have an interest in Canada's international relations. The datasets found on this Open Government site can also be consulted using the Heads of Posts database. 2022-12-01 Global Affairs Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Government and PoliticsPersonsCountriesPersonal NamePositionForeign Affairs Heads of Posts DatabaseHTML https://w05.international.gc.ca/headsofpost/searchhp-recherchecm.aspx?_ga=2.256821387.1804727749.1668526891-918560126.1619458049&lang=fra Heads of Posts DatabaseHTML https://w05.international.gc.ca/headsofpost/searchhp-recherchecm.aspx?_ga=2.256821387.1804727749.1668526891-918560126.1619458049 Heads of Missions by Country CSV https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/ece743aa-514a-4024-93c6-7f5ed5cd4eb2/resource/73c0a35b-78fa-41d7-8429-4731edc913d3/download/ods_country_footnotes-2022.csv Heads of Missions by PersonCSV https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/ece743aa-514a-4024-93c6-7f5ed5cd4eb2/resource/cb8b2bab-1a72-48a5-8faf-38b7a1158bae/download/ods_person_footnotes-2022.csv Heads of Missions by Person PostingsCSV https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/ece743aa-514a-4024-93c6-7f5ed5cd4eb2/resource/0a819fe4-33cb-4b76-aec1-512312b1efc5/download/ods_person_postings-2022.csv Country - data dictionaryHTML https://data.international.gc.ca/por/hom/dd-hom-footnote-country-table-eng.htm Person - data dictionaryHTML https://data.international.gc.ca/por/hom/dd-hom-footnote-person-table-eng.htm Person Postings - data dictionaryHTML https://data.international.gc.ca/por/hom/dd-hom-person-posting-table-eng.htm
