Haiti - Politics : Canada announces $91M million in aid
Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, who participated the previous day at the investiture ceremony of President Jovenel Moïse announced 5 development projects in Haiti. Canada’s health and welfare focus in the country aims to improve the health and rights of women and children, support initiatives in child protection and continue to increase the access to and completion of basic education, with a focus on girls.

Canada’s $91.2-million over 5 years investment will increase women’s access to sexual and reproductive health, protect the rights of child workers, increase access to education and improve women’s and children’s access to legal services. Finally, under an initiative of the International Development Research Centre‎, Canada will provide young Haitians with much-needed technical skills to enter the workforce and take control of their future.

"Canada’s support to Haiti and its people reflect the priorities of our development agenda: upholding and uplifting human dignity, empowering women and girls and enhancing the local capacity of government and institutions. As true partners, we are behind Haiti’s new government and are eager to work collaboratively to advance our vision together,” declared Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie.

Recall that the day before, Minister Bibeau held a one-on-one meeting with President Jovenel Moïse , on the sidelines of the investiture ceremony. During this meeting she reported that President Moïse had insisted on the importance of "social justice" and "good governance", "He fully recognizes the importance of having competent and integral people at the head of the various public services," she said, adding, "It is encouraging, but we remain very cautious in the use of funds and to whom they are given," to ensure that the money goes to where it is intended, she said.
