MESSAGE FROM THE HIGH COMMISSIONER

I wish to take this opportunity to introduce and welcome you to the new official website of the Kenya High Commission in Ottawa, Canada.

The aim of this website is to link the Mission to the public with a view to providing information on issues pertaining to consular services such as passports, visa applications and other related matters.

The website will in addition provide information on trade and investment opportunities available in Kenya. Tourism is also showcased so that visitors to Kenya can take full advantage of the flora and fauna and all that this beautiful country has to offer to those visiting whether for business or leisure.

Another important function of this website is to create a link between the Mission and the Kenya Diaspora. Kenyans living in Canada will be updated on political, social and economic developments in Kenya through the website on a regular basis. This, we hope, will enable for effective participation by all in the affairs of our motherland.

You are welcome to browse the website and provide feedback on ways we can improve it so as to serve you better. You can interact with us through the website, on social media or by contacting us directly using the telephone numbers listed on this site.

H.E. Mr. John L. Lanyasunya, MBS
HIGH COMMISSIONER

The launch of the Kenya National Electrification Strategy is a blueprint to achieve Kenya’s development goals through improving electricity access to power the Big4 agenda and other Government programs. With the help of the technological advances, the strategy has identified least-cost options for bringing electricity to households and businesses throughout the country with a vision of ensuring universal access for all Kenyans by 2022. Improved access to electricity will not only contribute towards economic development as an enabler for the Big 4 agenda, but will also improve livelihoods as it spurs growth of small scale industries. Provision of adequate, affordable, and reliable electricity supply will be important supplement to the investments in health and education guided by Kenya’s Vision 2030 to help Kenya move up the index. The launch was presided over by Energy Cabinet Secretary Hon. Charles Keter , Energy Principal Secretary Dr. Eng Joseph Njoroge joined by Mr. Lucio Monari, Director, Energy Global Practice, World Bank and Mr. Adnan Amin, Director General, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) #Electricity4AllKE
