Susan le Jeune d'Allegeershecque has been Britain's High Commissioner to Canada since August last year.
Her 30-year diplomatic career has taken her to three continents, and exposed her to issues from the EU, to nuclear non-proliferation, anti-narcotics work and the corporate challenge of the Foreign Service's HR policies. She has lived through a coup in Venezuela, and the immediate aftermath of the Brexit vote in her last post as Ambassador to Austria and Permanent Representative to the UN organizations in Vienna. A career highlight was taking part in the negotiations that led to the JCPOA nuclear deal with Iran.
Susan speaks French, German and Spanish and is married to Stéphane a former journalist and teacher. They have two grown-up sons.
Mrs Susan le Jeune d'Allegeershecque CMG was appointed British High Commissioner to Canada in August 2017.
