Greetings from Ambassador Roy Eriksson
Hello to all readers! My name is Roy Eriksson and I am the new Ambassador of Finland to Canada. It is nice to be back! I served in Ottawa between 1995 and 1998 as the Deputy Head of Mission in the Embassy. I arrived here in mid-June with my wife, Victoria Eriksson, directly from Mexico, where I served as the Ambassador of Finland for nearly four years. From Mexico, I was accredited as Ambassador to nine other countries in Central America and the Caribbean.
