If a word ends with -Y, the plural ends in -IES.

Canada has two buildings used by the Canadian High Commission(embassy) in London. The one below is Canada House(1827) at Trafalgar Square which dominates the western side of the Square. It houses the cultural and consular sections. The other part of the High Commission is at 1 Grosvenor Square called McDonald House which houses the administrative and trade sections.

In background, otherwise known as Canada Corner, you can see the Canadian Pacific building(Canadian Pacific Railway which also ran the CP Ocean Steamship Line). There were or are several Canadian businesses located in this area like the Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada building(which housed the Cdn Military HQ during WW2), the Montreal Star(closed), Royal Bank of Canada(since moved).
