The mandate of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is "to promote the peaceful use and development of space, to advance the knowledge of space through science and to ensure that space science and technology provide social and economic benefits for Canadians."Footnote 1 Established in March 1989, with a status equivalent to that of a Department of the Government of Canada, the CSA is responsible for the coordination and implementation of space policies and programs, the application and diffusion of space technology, and the promotion of commercial exploitation of space.

Over the years one of the most common requests for information about Global Affairs Canada has been to identify those who have served as heads of Canadian posts abroad and their dates of service. Therefore, the Department's Historical Section created the ‘Heads of Posts’ list, later transformed into a database, for use as a reference guide by employees and by those in the academic community and the general public who have an interest in Canada's international relations. The datasets found on this Open Government site can also be consulted using the Heads of Posts database.
