    The Embassy of Iran in Ottawa is the embassy of Iran in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is located at 245 Metcalfe Street in the Centretown neighbourhood of Ottawa, across the street from the Booth House, currently home to the Laurentian Leadership Centre. Iran moved into the facilities in the summer of 1991; previously they had been based in a building on Roosevelt Avenue in Ottawa''s west end. The ambassador lived in a house on Acacia Avenue in Rockcliffe Park, near Stornoway.

    On September 7, 2012, Canada announced it will expel all remaining Iranian diplomats in Canada within five days.


    On April 5, 1992 the embassy was stormed by a group of Iranian exiles linked to the MEK. No one was seriously injured in the raid but the mob ransacked and destroyed much of the interior. Most of those responsible were later arrested.
