OTTAWA, Canada – On Thursday, Beverley Oda, Canada’s Minister of International Cooperation, concluded a three-day visit in Haiti. Oda travelled to Haiti to observe the results achieved through Canada’s ongoing commitment to the Haitian people.
She met with the president and the new prime minister of Haiti, as well as with representatives of the Haitian government and Canadian organizations working on the ground in Haiti.
“I am able to report that progress is being made in the recovery and reconstruction of Haiti after the earthquake,” said Oda. “The rebuilding of Haiti will take many years. We must all remember the challenges that Haiti was facing prior to the earthquake. Our efforts must improve the living conditions for the people of Haiti and benefit future generations. These efforts must be led by the Haitian people, and Canada remains committed to this long-term process.”
