A 52-year-old Montrealer and mother of three was found dead Tuesday on a beach in Varadero, Cuba.
In an email to Global News, Global Affairs Canada confirmed her identity as Antoinette Traboulsi.
A department spokesman confirmed that a Canadian citizen had been killed in Cuba, but gave no details about Traboulsi’s death, citing the Privacy Act.
Cuban authorities in Varadero contacted by Global News also declined to comment.

Trabouls cousin Sami Soussa described the mother of three teenage girls as an energetic woman who liked music, dancing and taking pictures that she would post on social media where she was called “Angie”.
Traboulsi worked as a hygiene and hygiene doctor at the Sacr-Coeur Hospital in Montreal and had fallen in love with Cuba, a country she visited on many occasions.
Soussa said her cousin flew to Cuba last Friday, November 13, where she had rented a room at Casa Gladys.
On Saturday morning, Traboulsi reportedly went to the beach.
“She posted a video and photo on her Facebook page,” Soussa said.
In the evening, Traboulsi was scheduled to meet a friend, but she never showed up.

According to Soussa, who says he is in communication with the friend in question, the latter informed the authorities on Sunday morning.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Soussa begged for any information about his missing cousin.
A second post Tuesday night confirmed that Trabouls’s body had been found on the beach.
“I had confirmation today saying that she is really my cousin with indications that she was killed. “She was buried in the sand and gave birth to traces of violence,” Soussa said.
Global Affairs Canada said it is in contact with local authorities to gather additional information.

The department is also helping the family.
“We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the Canadian citizen who was killed in Cuba,” said Global Affairs Canada spokesman Jason Kung. “Consular services are being provided for the victims’ families.”
Traboulsi is the second Quebecer to be killed in Cuba this year.
In February, Nathalie Fraser, 52, who was spending the winter months in Cuba with her partner, was found dead.
