The Consulate was pleased to welcome newly appointed U.S. Ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman and his wife Vicki to Montreal for their first official visit. During their day in the city, the Heymans met with a range of representatives from influential local institutions including Hydro-Quebec, Bombardier, Montreal International, State Department exchange program alumni and other business, academic and cultural leaders.
This one-day stop was towards the end of the Heymans’ cross-Canada welcome tour. Throughout this nationwide tour, Ambassador and Mrs. Heyman were pleased to learn from Canadians everything that is important for them to know about our unparalleled cross-border friendship. They encourage Canadians to continue giving suggestions of what they should do and see during their time in Canada by tweeting to @BruceAHeyman and @vshey with the hashtag #hearfromyou.
