Canada’s ambassador to the United States joined Houston’s mayor in officially opening the Canadian Consulate in Houston.
There are now 83 consulates in Houston — the largest consular corps in the Southwest. Canada’s U.S. ambassador Frank McKenna says Texas and Canada have an extraordinary relationship.
McKenna says this consulate office is overdue, given the close energy ties Houston has with Canada.
Diane Simsovic will serve as Consul and Trade Commissioner of Canada in Houston.
