Interspersing many of his remarks with a French translation, he highlighted “The Caribbean Regional Development programme, an investment of $600 million Canadian, is a key element of Canada’s work in the region. Canada works in partnership with countries of the Caribbean to create a more stable and predictable environment for economic growth through increased capacity and accountability of public institutions, and by fostering a more competitive private sector. Canada collaborates to advance the rule of law and strengthen legal institutions and we are a strong partner to the region in the area of disaster management.”

Canadians across the country and around the world show their pride in their history, culture and achievements on July 1. It is a day of celebration, where many festivities are held across the country, including multicultural celebrations, artistic and sports activities, and fireworks. These celebrations involve the participation of various municipalities and volunteer associations.

The High Commission also collaborated through the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives with several countries in the OECS this year. Projects included strengthening security training for the Eastern Caribbean Airport Authority; establishing a carpentry workshop in Dominica’s prison; and upgrading training facilities at the Chamber of Commerce in St. Kitts, to name a few.”
