Lewis Coughlin, Consul of Canada
New Consul of Canada in Guadalajara talks about the federal election, NAFTA 2.0 and support to Canadians in the region
Lewis arrived in Guadalajara at the beginning of July accompanied by his family and replaced outgoing Consul, Stephane Charboneau. Lewis was cross-posted from Seattle, where he recently served as Consul & Trade Commissioner in Washington state from 2015-2019. Prior to that, Lewis headed up the Trade Section at the Canadian Embassy in Caracas, Venezuela (2013-2015).
Lewis first joined Canada’s External Affairs department in January of 1992 and has gained experience in Canada and overseas at diplomatic missions throughout the world. He speaks French, Italian, Spanish and basic oral Mandarin.
He is excited to be in Mexico to build trade relations with Canada and, more importantly, to provide support to the Canadian expat community in Jalisco.
Come and meet Lewis and bring your questions.
