OTTAWA, Canada, November 27, 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Canada’s Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, the Honourable Christian Paradis, today announced that Canada is reinstituting direct development assistance to the Government of Burkina Faso.

“Now that constitutional order has been restored following October’s political instability, Canada is lifting its suspension of direct financial aid to Burkina Faso and will again provide the government and its institutions with development assistance.

”We are satisfied that a legitimate and accountable civil authority is leading Burkina Faso toward what we hope will be peaceful and democratic elections in 2015.

”Canadian development assistance is helping Burkina Faso to secure a future for children and youth, and to stimulate sustainable economic growth. We look forward to providing the government and its institutions with the help required to reach these development objectives in a climate of political stability and harmony.”
