The Embassy of Canada has announced that as of 23 November it will be operating from the Acropolis Center. The new address is Av. Winston Churchill 1099, Citigroup Tower, Acropolis Center, Floor 18, Piantini, Santo Domingo. The Embassy says that it decided to relocate as a result of an increase in demands for its services. The Embassy stresses that the DR and Canada have held diplomatic relations for over 50 years, with multi million-dollar investments in the banking sector and in the apparel and mining industries and more than 700,000 Canadian visitors every year. This is in addition to major development projects in the areas of reforestation and health.
