About the Embassy

 

Brief History

The diplomatic relations between the Republic of Kazakhstan and Canada were established on April 6, 1992, thus paving the way for steady and mutually beneficial bilateral ties in the political, economic and cultural spheres.

With a view to facilitate friendly relations and provide assistance in traveling and visa related issues the Consulate of the Republic of Kazakhstan began its work in Toronto in 1997 until the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan was opened in Ottawa in 2008.

In 2012, the year that marked the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Kazakhstan and Canada, the Embassy of Kazakhstan to Canada moved to a new location at 150 Metcalfe Street, Suite 1603-1604, Ottawa, ON, K2P 1P1.

In 2013, the Embassy received accreditation to Jamaica, Republic of Cuba and the Dominican Republic.
