  • 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.
