New Zealand High Commission Ottawa, Canada


New Zealand has a longstanding and close relationship with Canada. It centres on cooperation in peacekeeping, participation in multilateral excercises, and an annual three-month exchange of around 20 personnel from each country. The defence relationship has recently been further strengthened by our contributions to the joint New Zealand/Canadian maritime operations in the Gulf of Oman.

Further information is available on the Ministry of Defence website.
