”I commend Interim President Guaidó for the courage and leadership he has shown in his efforts to return democracy to Venezuela, and I offer Canada’s continued support," Trudeau said in a statement.

The European Union offered a pointedly warm welcome Wednesday to Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who is seeking to broaden international support for elections to vote President Nicolas Maduro out of power.

Canada is one of more than 50 nations that recognized Guaidó — head of the South American nation's congress — as Venezuela's interim president last year on grounds that Maduro's reelection was illegitimate.

Canada also has imposed sanctions against officials of Maduro's government and has joined five other nations in referring Maduro to the International Criminal Court.

Despite the international backing for Guaidó, Maduro retains control over all practical aspects of government in Venezuela.

Guaidó earlier made stops in in London, Paris, Madrid and the Davos Economic Forum.
