Louis Marcotte - Ambassador of Canada to Peru and Bolivia


I am honoured to be representing Canada in Peru and Bolivia, where my mission is to strengthen ties and promote collaboration toward shared objectives. Canada is committed to expand and deepen its engagement in the region, promoting governance, pluralism, diversity, respect for the environment, indigenous peoples and human rights, with a special emphasis on empowering women and girls.

In Peru and Bolivia, the Embassy of Canada is actively engaged in strengthening relations by pursuing a range of common interests, including consular services to Canadians, trade and investment, development cooperation, and visa and immigration services to Peruvian and Bolivian citizens.

I invite you to consult this Web site and to follow us on Facebook and X (Twitter) (Peru) X (Twitter) (Bolivia) to learn more about our work.
