H.E. Maguy Maccario Doyle and the Right Honourable David Johnston


On Tuesday, December 16th, 2014, Her Excellency Maguy Maccario Doyle, Ambassador of Monaco to the United States, and Ambassador-designate of Monaco to Canada, presented her Letters of Credence to His Excellency the Right Honorable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada.

At the ceremony, which took place in Ottawa at Rideau Hall, the Official Residence of the Governor General, the Ambassadors of the Russian Federation, the Republic of Guinea, and the Republic of Ecuador also presented their Letters of Credence.

During his remarks, the Governor General welcomed Ambassador Maccario Doyle’s nomination, commending her philanthropic work and encouraged her to continue her “philanthropic and volunteerism efforts—for which you have been recognized in your home country and in the US.” He emphasized that Monaco and Canada are “proud to collaborate so closely in such Organizations as the United Nations and La Francophonie,” and added that “through these Organizations, and through our people-to-people ties and our mutual respect and support, we can have a positive impact on the world”.

Following the official ceremony organized by the Office of Protocol of Canada, the Ambassador and the Governor General were able to exchange ideas in a one-on-one conversation.  During their conversation, Ambassador Maccario Doyle congratulated Canada on the recent election of former Governor General, the Right Honorable Michaëlle Jean, to Secretary General of the International Organization of La Francophonie, and further expressed H.S.H. Prince Albert II’s continued commitment to the preservation of the Great North and the Arctic Zone.

In addition, possible collaboration in several areas was discussed, not only through existing partnerships, but also through education, cultural exchange, tourism, and people living in poverty, such as the “Nager pour survivre” program, supported by the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation in collaboration with the Société de Sauvetage of Québec.
