Canada Five-Year Strategy for Haiti Development

Canada is continuing its engagement with Haiti, renewing its strategic five year plan from 2015- 2020. Canada's main focus will be on sustainable economic growth in support of a flexible economy for Haiti. The mechanisms for growth will involve raising private sector participation and pushing for innovative financing. Canada anticipates it will achieve considerable success in raising the standard of living for Haitians over the next several years.


Canada's five-year strategy program will cover five priority areas of infrastructure development in Haiti:

Economy and Investment

• Make credit and alternative financing programs more available

• Stimulate the business environment

• Develop agriculture, mining, tourism, and manufacturing sectors


• Assist the electoral process

• Help reform tax collection and customs

• Support women's political involvement and youth programs

• Make Haitian government more transparent and encourage capacity-building to stimulate the economy

Judicial, Law Enforcement, Security/Stability

• Energize the Haitian National Police

• Overhaul and render more efficient judicial and prison infrastructure

• Strengthen stability of government

• Modernize civil and criminal institutions

• Streamline tax and commercial codes

Health and Welfare of Women and Children

• Reform maternal, neo-natal, and child health

• Reduce child trafficking with strong legislative measures

• Make more available free and compulsory education for girls

Bi-lateral Accountability

• Sign agreements between Canada and Haiti recommitting to transparent and productive cooperation between them

• Implement mutual requirements

Canada wants more leadership participation to effect structural change and achieve sustainability. The Canada-Haiti partnership intends to collaborate with primary donors to establish priority projects and initiatives to deal with these concerns.
