The Embassy of Canada to Russia in Moscow is the diplomatic mission of Canada to Russia. Included in its mandate are the countries of Armenia and Uzbekistan. It also provides visa services to residents of Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

As of June 2007, to service such a vast area, the mission was staffed with 47 Canadian diplomats who were supported by 108 locally-engaged personnel, based in the chancery and three other buildings, and a fleet of 22 vehicles. From Moscow, Canada also supports Honorary Consulates in Vladivostok, Tashkent (Uzbekistan), and Yerevan (Armenia). A Consulate General in St. Petersburg was closed in March 2007.

Located at 23 Starokonyushenny Pereulok (Russian: Староконюшенный переулок, 23) in the Khamovniki District of Moscow, the three-storey yellow and white Art Nouveau style chancery also houses the ambassador's official residence on the top floor.[1]

In Canada, Russia is represented by its Embassy in Ottawa, Consulates General in Toronto and Montreal, and Honorary Consulates in Vancouver, Edmonton, Windsor, ON, and St. John's, NL.
