Not many people know that Canada and Morocco have being enjoying positive diplomatic relations since as early as 1962. Today, the Canadian Embassy in Morocco not only has a long history of positively assisting the Moroccan community, but has also assisted thousands of Canadians to improve trade and travel relations with the country. If you are a Moroccan wishing to travel to Canada or a Canadian visiting Morocco, the Canadian Embassy in Morocco can definitely help you.
There are so many services offered by the Canadian Embassy in Morocco that it is impossible to explain them all here. Simply put, the embassy is able to provide full consular services to all Canadians currently situated in Morocco for what ever reason. This may include the supplying of temporary visas in the case of an emergency and other necessary services. While they provide every basic service that may be needed by a Canadian citizen visiting or living in the country, they also provide a full range of services with regard to the providing of visas and immigration. Many young Moroccans enjoy the prospect of later studying in Canada, where the level of tuition is often considered to be greater than that offered locally. In fact, roughly a thousand students make the journey to Canada to further their education each year! While the majority of Moroccans leaving the country for Canada are students, there are also those who are fortunate enough to travel for business or pleasure. Various visas can be supplied for these individuals and immigration papers can also be organized through the embassy.
Another facet of the embassy is the role it plays in the small but growing trade and investment sectors of Morocco’s economy. Although this role is small at best, it continues to grow each year due to favorable relations and trade conditions. Moreover, the Canadian Embassy in Morocco is able to quickly and effectively settle any dispute relating to trade and investment between the two countries.
