Registering with a Canadian Embassy is an important preventative measure to take while living abroad. If your home government knows where you are in the world, it can help citizens with immigration problems, health and safety concerns and other emergencies that may occur unexpectedly. Take the time to fill out the brief paperwork at the embassy or online. All Canadian travelers, whether living abroad or on holiday, are encouraged to register before leaving Canada.
