Administration of the Government of Canada Gift Bank
The Program is responsible for providing items of Canadian craft for presentation on behalf of the Government of Canada by the Governor General, members of the Canadian Ministry and deputy ministers to their respective foreign counterparts.
The Gift Bank also ensures that official gifts are distinctively Canadian. Appropriate gifts include contemporary arts and crafts or items representative of Canadian culture, arts, and cultural products or Canadian manufacturing. The Gift Bank can provide advice on appropriate types of gifts.
