Welcome to High Commission

Thank you for taking the time to visit the official website of the South African High Commission in Ottawa, Canada.

We pride ourselves on providing you with a simple user-friendly platform with a valuable and reliable array of information. We are confident that your visit to our site will help you understand the vast opportunities our beautiful country, South Africa, has to offer. Whether you are a South African in Canada, a potential investor, or a tourist, this site will assist you to learn, connect and have a better and informed understanding of South Africa.

Accordingly, the site covers areas on trade and investment for the investor community; civic services (passports, identity documents and similar) for South Africans in Canada; tourism; and key and useful facts about South Africa.

South Africa continues to share strong relations with Canada, based on the “leading role Canada played in international efforts to pressure South Africa to dismantle its apartheid system and promote the establishment of a multi-ethnic, multi-racial, democratic society.” Today that relationship continues and you will read more about this as you further navigate our site.

We encourage you to visit us often as we will constantly be updating our information with you in mind. And yes, you are welcome to add us to your list of favourites.
