Ambassador William Crosbie will discuss the progress that Canada has made to-date in Afghanistan and the impact this work has had on the lives of ordinary Afghans, and he will further explain Canada’s new non-combat role, which will focus on four key areas: investing in the future of Afghan children and youth through education and health; advancing security, the rule of law and human rights; promoting regional diplomacy; and delivering humanitarian assistance to the Afghan people.
William Crosbie is Canada’s fifth head of mission in Kabul since Canada re-established diplomatic relations with Afghanistan in 2002. Previous to his most current role, Mr. Crosbie held a number of senior management positions within government including his role as assistant deputy minister for the Consular Services and Emergency Management Branch at Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada.
