Canada – Grenada relations are bilateral relations between Canada and Grenada. Canada recognized Grenada and also formally established diplomatic relations on 7 February 1974, as the same day as Grenada got independence from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.[1] Both countries are members of the Commonwealth of Nations, and they share the same head of state and monarch as Commonwealth realms.

History[edit]

Early bilateral interactions occurred as both countries shared their colonial relationship as former parts of the British Empire.

Trade[edit]

There are eight Canadian businesses in Grenada.[2]

As today, Canadian banks have an especially large role in the Grenada commercial banking industry. Canadian banks own one of the largest banks in Grenada.[3] In the early 1980s, the Canadian government contributed six million US dollar for the contraction of the Point Salines International, as today known as the Maurice Bishop International Airport.[4]
