Haiti: Canadian aid lacks transparency

Ottawa lack of transparency in the financing of reconstruction in Haiti and imposes a model subject to its commercial interests economic development, a new study finds.

If the commitment of funds from Canada is considered "satisfactory" compared to other donor countries, how the money is distributed remains unclear, says researcher Paul Cliche in a report released Thursday, just days before the fourth anniversary of earthquake that devastated the Pearl of the Antilles.

"We have comprehensive data on funded projects, but it comes from the UN rapporteur. And aggregate data, it is said that two-thirds of the reconstruction aid ($ 554.8 million) fall in the category 'unspecified'. So we do not have a global vision, "explained Mr. Cliche.
