Bilateral relations

Canada’s bilateral relations with Hungary, a NATO ally and member of the European Union, have a strong historical foundation. Canada resettled nearly 38,000 Hungarian refugees who fled the Soviet invasion of their country following the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. In 2010, Canada designated the arrival of these refugees as a National Historic Event, largely for the way in which it helped to shape Canadian immigration policy.

Trade relations

The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement provides further opportunities to grow the bilateral economic relationship between Canada and Hungary. In 2022, two-way merchandise trade between Canada and Hungary reached $964.8 million. Canadian merchandise exports to Hungary were $100.1 million and merchandise imports from Hungary were $864.7 million.

In 2022, Canadian direct investment abroad in Hungary was valued at $25 billion. That same year, foreign direct investment from Hungary in Canada was valued at $659 million.
