Netherlands' representations in Canada
The Netherlands is represented throughout Canada. The embassy and consulates-general (CG) are staffed by diplomats, under the leadership of the ambassador and consuls-general respectively. They are employed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, stationed here for a specific period of time (4-5 years).
In areas where no embassy or CG is present, honorary consuls (HC's) are often present as Dutch representatives.
