Both had long and varied careers at Global Affairs Canada until their retirement in 2017. Maria had postings in Rome, Athens and at headquarters in Ottawa, and served in a variety of roles including administration, consular policy and commercial relations. Robert spent his formative years in Algeria, Cameroon, and Nigeria later joining Canada’s Foreign Service. He represented Canada as Ambassador to the Hellenic Republic (2011-2015), High Commissioner to the Republic of Cyprus (2011-2015) and as Ambassador to the People’s Democractic Republic of Algeria (2004-2007). He also served in senior roles at Global Affairs in Ottawa including as Department Spokesperson and Press Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Director of Central and West Africa, and Chief of Protocol of Canada.
