About the Permanent Mission to the ICAO

The Mission promotes Canadian interests and works with other ICAO member states to develop and uphold international norms and rules for civil aviation. Through diplomacy, negotiation and daily monitoring of ICAO activities, the Mission works to advance Canada's interests and promote civil aviation's safe and orderly development.

Hosting such a critically important international organization is an enormous honour. The Mission fulfills its host country responsibilities by ensuring international delegates, staff and their families have the resources they require to live and work in Montreal. We also ensure that the privileges of diplomats working in Canada are respected, and extend diplomatic courtesies wherever possible.
