As Consul General of Italy in Vancouver, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all the visitors of this website, in the hope that you will be able to access here all the information and useful indications pertaining to the services we provide for Italian citizens and foreigners alike, and more generally aimed to facilitate your "virtual" connection to Italy!

The region of Western Canada under the jurisdiction of this Consulate General, comprising the Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, and the Territory of Yukon, is characterized by strong dynamism, a harmonious multicultural and multiethnic environment, attractive markets with significant industrial and commercial opportunities, and particular vitality in the fields of scientific research and technology.

The Italian and Italian Canadian community in this region is dynamic and fully integrated into the social fabric of Canada, yet simultaneously dedicated to preserving the values and spirit of the heritage and culture of Italy as country of origin; such a community represents an essential point of reference and a catalyst for the strengthening of relations between Italy and Western Canada.

More and more Canadian citizens and nationals from other countries residing here demonstrate a growing interest towards Italy, both for tourism and for study or professional partnerships. As Consulate General of Italy in Vancouver it is our privilege and mandate to facilitate and to promote dialogue and ties with organizations and institutions in the economic, cultural, educational, social, scientific and technological fields in Italy.

I do hope that our website will constitute an increasingly effective resource in response to the requests for information about our country from a widely diversified range of visitors.

In closing, while I invite our visitors to explore the external links which are also provided in our website in order to acquire an ever broader knowledge of Italy, I also remain at your disposal for any suggestions (by email to  that may help to enhance the usage and effectiveness of the website.

With best regards,



The Consul General
