Mission Canada prioritizes diversity and inclusion, both in the workplace and in their engagement with the Canadian public. To mark Capital Pride Week, the Progress Pride flag hung prominently from Embassy Ottawa’s chancery, Aug. 26. Displaying the flag was part of a broader commemoration in which the embassy joined Diplomats for Equality in marking Pride Week. They joined together to share a video that included voices from across the diplomatic community in Ottawa supporting the LGTBQ community, and they supported cultural programs promoting the protection of human rights for all, regardless of race, age, physical or mental ability, gender, or sexual orientation.
