High Commissioner's Corner

Nigeria High Commissioner to Canada

Ambassador Adeyinka Olatokunbo Asekun

Welcome to the official website of the Nigerian High Commission in Ottawa, Canada.

The High Commission has the mandate of advancing the welfare of Nigerians in Canada through its consular services, as well as promoting stronger bilateral ties between Nigeria and Canada, particularly in the areas of trade, investment, education, technological transfer, international cooperation etc. We provide relevant information on business, tourism, humanitarian, entertainment, etc to Canadians who are interested in knowing more about Nigeria which is abundantly endowed with natural and human resources.

Nigeria has enormous potentials for rapid growth, as huge opportunities for investment abound in Agriculture, Energy, Infrastructure, Financial Services, Tourism, Education, Information and Communications Technology, amongst others. As the most populous country on the African continent, Nigeria provides the gateway to other African markets, especially those within the West Africa sub-region. These, alongside Government’s sustained efforts to create a robust business environment, make Nigeria a preferred investment and tourism destination in Africa.
