Over the years one of the most common requests for information about the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade has been to identify those who have served as heads of Canadian posts abroad and their dates of service.

This dataset includes names of heads of missions abroad, diplomatic staff located in missions and some logistical information as published on DFATD's Internet site.
