Minister Arcand to visit Haiti
Pierre Arcand, Minister of International Relations and Minister responsible for La Francophonie, will carry out a mission to Haiti at the end of April. He will be accompanied by a small delegation of institutional partners and businesspeople. The purpose of the mission is to assess the deployment of assistance that Québec can offer Haiti.
The Government of Québec has deployed a number of efforts since the earthquake in order to provide Haiti with emergency assistance. The Premier of Québec, Jean Charest, has met with the Haitian Prime Minister on a number of occasions since the natural disaster to make sure that Québec’s efforts correspond to the country’s needs. A ministerial committee has thus been created in order to coordinate and ensure the efficiency of Québec’s collective efforts.
