Exports and trade between Lithuania and Canada has seen a steady increase in the last two decades, and while Lithuania does export everything from petroleum to raw materials, it’s the telecommunication services that deserves a special mention.
As many as two third of Lithuanian Canadians live in and around Toronto today. However, that is not the only reason Canada has a link with Lithuania. Lithuanians started arriving in Canada right from 1905.
While Canada and Lithuania have ties that date back decades and even centuries, it was only in 1991 that the countries established diplomatic relations. Lithuania, situated on the south-eastern shore of the Baltic Sea, now enjoys diplomatic relations with as many as 182 countries.
