The geography of Iraq is diverse with four main zones, the desert between the west and south-west, the rolling upland between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, the highlands in the north and north-east and the alluvial plain through which the two mighty rivers flow.
The Embassy of Canada in Jordan represents Canada in Iraq. Canada believes a stable and democratic Iraq could influence global peace and prosperity.
Though Canada did not join the military coalition which invaded Iraq in 2003, it was one of the first countries to assist in humanitarian and reconstruction services.
As the country's reconstruction grows, it provides business opportunities for Canadian companies.
Canada exports wheat, and other food products to Iraq, and imports heavy oil and petroleum products from Iraq.
