“Our trade and investment relationships continue to grow – you probably will not know that the first offshore oil concessions in Qatar were granted in 1949 to a Canadian Company,” Canadian ambassador Adrian Norfolk said in his speech at Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation celebration in Doha.

The event was attended by Qatar's Minister of Education and Higher Education HE Mohamed Abdul Wahed Ali al-Hammadi, Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Chief of Protocol Ibrahim Yousif Abdullah Fakhro, American Affairs Department director Zayed bin Rashid al-Mansour al-Nuaimi, ambassadors from various missions in Doha, and other dignitaries.

More than 60 Canadian companies and organisations are currently active in Qatar’s key sectors, including infrastructure, healthcare, defence and security, education, oil and gas, ICT, aerospace, and transportation.
