“Today, six new heads of mission from the Sultanate of Oman, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Republic of Zimbabwe, the Republic of the Philippines, the Republic of Colombia, and the United Mexican States presented their credentials at Rideau Hall.”
Her Excellency the Right Honourable Mary Simon, Governor General of Canada, welcomed six new heads of mission to Canada during a ceremony at Rideau Hall.
Upon their arrival in Canada, new heads of mission must present their letters of credence to the governor general before they can carry out their duties. Letters of credence are the official documents that accredit a diplomat as an ambassador or high commissioner to another country.
After the ceremony, Carlos Joaquín posted “I had the honor of presenting Letters of Credence as Ambassador of Mexico in Canada to the Governor General, Her Excellency Mary Simon with the task to strengthen ties of friendship and collaboration between both countries.”
