Known Iranian state-owned property in Canada

فارسی

The Government of Canada is committed to fighting terrorism and to holding the perpetrators of terrorism and those who support them accountable for their actions. The Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act - and related amendments to the State Immunity Act - allows victims of terrorism to sue perpetrators of terrorism and those who support them, including listed foreign states, for loss or damage that has occurred as a result of an act of terrorism committed anywhere in the world. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird and the Honourable Vic Toews, then Minister of Public Safety, announced on September 7th, 2012 that Canada has listed the Islamic Republic of Iran as a state that supports terrorism. To assist victims in locating and identifying Iranian state assets in Canada, Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) is releasing the list of known Iranian state-owned property in Canada.

Please note that DFATD does not guarantee the completeness or accuracy of the information provided. Judgment creditors of the Islamic Republic of Iran are encouraged to conduct their own due diligence and not to rely solely on the information provided below.

If you are aware of other assets that should be added to this list or corrections to the information listed and wish to share it for the purposes of assisting victims of terrorism, please contact DFATD at iran-canada@international.gc.ca.
