You are advised to exercise a high degree of caution in Benin. The security situation is generally stable. However, Canadians should avoid demonstrations, large crowds and public areas where unrest may occur and are advised to obtain information about local developments. OFFICIAL REGISTRATION RECOMMENDATION: We offer a registration service for all Canadians travelling or living abroad. This service is provided so that we can contact and assist you in an emergency abroad, such as a natural disaster or civil unrest, or inform you of a family emergency at home. Registration can be done on-line or by contacting a Canadian government office abroad. For more information, see our FAQs on Registration of Canadians Abroad. Read article
