Celebration Canada would be impossible without the help of the CTOT team.

Since then, relations between Canada and Taiwan have strengthened and diversified considerably making Taiwan one of Canada’s most significant partners in Asia-Pacific. The Canadian Trade Office in Taipei, is Canada’s representation in Taiwan, which functions as a de facto embassy in the absence of diplomatic relations.
