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

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

Trade

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]
