After Barbados became an independent country on November 30, 1966, its diplomatic relation with Canada was immediately established. The two countries have a long-standing connection. This explains why some Canadian financial institutions such as the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), The Bank of Nova Scotia, and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Canada have long had a presence in Barbados.
Both countries have bilateral trade relations with each other with the bilateral trade volume totaling $49.7 million in 2017. Canadians travel to Barbados for several reasons which include trade, tourism and so forth.
