Most diplomatic and consular vehicles are registered by the authorities in Ontario. However there are also CD and CC plates issued in British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Québec.
1959-1973 series white on red, diplomatic plates used a CD prefix, and Consular Corps plates used a CC prefix.
Serial letter added in 1973.
