The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today announced that Canada is conducting a diplomatic mission in Haiti from December 7-9, 2022. This mission will complement virtual engagements and discussions taking place in parallel.

The mission, led by Bob Rae, Canada’s Ambassador to the United Nations, will seek to encourage greater unity among key stakeholders towards a political path and process for democratic elections.

As part of the Diplomatic mission, Ambassador Rae will also consult with high-level political figures, members of civil society, the UN and other key stakeholders on options to support Haitian-led efforts to address the humanitarian and security crises and on the potential role that Canada could play in the international response.

The international community has an important role to play in responding to the current humanitarian and security crisis in Haiti.

Canada’s efforts will continue to support Haitian-led solutions to restore access to essential goods and services, and will build on our longstanding engagement.
