PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti, CMC:
Canada's International Cooperation Minister Julian Fantino has arrived here at the start of a four-day visit to gain a better understanding of how Ottawa's contributions to Haiti are making a difference in the lives of the Haitian people.
"Canada has played a key role in international efforts to support the people of Haiti to overcome the immense challenges they have faced such as the 2010 earthquake and more recently Hurricane Sandy," said Fantino.
ďThe Government of Canada and Canadians expect transparency and accountability from the Government of Haiti given Canadians significant level of generosity. I will be expressing this expectation in my meetings with senior officials.Ē
