  • Fifth Anniversary of the Earthquake in Haiti

    On the fifth anniversary of the Haiti earthquake, we pause to remember all those who died or were injured in the January 2010 event. Canada wants all who were affected to know that our thoughts and prayers are with them on this day.

    We wish to acknowledge the incredible resilience and perseverance that Haiti’s people have shown in the face of such tragedy. While challenges remain, vital infrastructure and national institutions are being rebuilt, and living conditions are improving. We also take this opportunity to thank all the Canadians that have contributed in many ways to help Haiti recover.

    Our government has recently re-confirmed Haiti as a country of focus for our development cooperation. Canadians and Haitians alike want to see a Haiti that is stable and prosperous and where there are opportunities for all. Our ongoing engagement in Haiti will be anchored in mutual accountability and greater aid coordination to ensure all citizens can benefit from stable and sustainable economic growth.

  • Nearly 9 million U.S. jobs depend on trade & investment with Canada

    What if the world’s largest trading relationship between Canada and the United States ceased?  What would happen to the millions of U.S. jobs that depend on trade and investment with Canada?  Using this economic model, Victoria University Professor Peter Dixon recently released a study that examines the impacts on jobs in the United States if trade with Canada stopped.  The study concludes that close to 9 million jobs in the United States, in every state and congressional district, are supported through trade and investment with Canada.
