The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Canada (Chinese: 駐加拿大臺北經濟文化代表處; pinyin: Zhù Jiānádà Táiběi Jīngjì Wénhuà Dàibiǎo Chù; French: Bureau économique et culturel de Taïpei au Canada), also called TECO Canada, is a trade office representing the interests of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in Canada. Located in Ottawa, the office functions as a de facto embassy in the absence of formal diplomatic relations between Canada and Taiwan.

The office is headed by a representative serving as the de facto ambassador to Canada, currently Winston Chen.[1] Additional branch offices are located in Toronto, Ontario[2] and Vancouver, British Columbia.[3] The Ottawa office handles passport/visa issues for Greater Ottawa Region, Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador and Saint-Pierre and Miquelon,[4] while offices in Toronto and Vancouver handles needs in the rest of Canada.[5]

The counterpart Canadian office in Taiwan is the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei.[6]
