Canada Imposes Restrictions on Zimbabwe

In response to the recent events in Zimbabwe, the Government of Canada announced today that it will immediately put in place a series of measures to severely restrict its relationship with the Government of Zimbabwe. These measures include:

  • Imposing restrictions on travel, work and study on senior Zimbabwean government, military and police officials and their families.
  • Summoning the Ambassador of Zimbabwe to Canada to convey messages to her home government.
  • Reconfirming its long-standing policy against exporting military goods to Zimbabwe.
  • Not allowing any aircraft registered in Zimbabwe to land in, or to fly over, Canada.
In addition, the Government of Canada is encouraging Canadian companies to voluntarily divest from Zimbabwe.

The U.S. currently imposes targeted sanctions on the Mugabe regime and others found to have been undermining the democratic processes or institutions in Zimbabwe. These parties are indicated by the designation "[Zimbabwe]" on OFAC's Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List. In addition, Zimbabwe has been subject to a U.S. arms embargo since April 17, 2002. It is widely expected that the U.S. will impose additional sanctions on Zimbabwe in the near future.
