Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke with the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley, to discuss the ongoing political, security, and humanitarian crisis in Haiti.

The leaders welcomed the establishment of the new Transitional Presidential Council. They expressed hope that this development will pave the way for the restoration of democratic order in Haiti, facilitate the deployment of the United Nations-authorized Multinational Security Support mission to help the Haitian National Police, and bring long-term stability to the country. Prime Minister Trudeau recognized the role of Barbados and its fellow members of the Caribbean Community in supporting these efforts by fostering inclusive political dialogue to advance Haitian-led solutions.

The prime ministers also highlighted the importance of mobilizing financing for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including through multilateral development banks, and agreed to continue working together to this end.

Prime Minister Trudeau and Prime Minister Mottley looked forward to continuing to advance shared priorities anchored in our strong bilateral relationship, and they agreed to remain in close contact as the situation in Haiti continues to evolve.
