From December 14-21, 2011, the Most Reverend Richard Smith, President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and Archbishop of the diocese of Edmonton, and Vice President Most Reverend Paul-André Durocher, Archbishop of the diocese of Gatineau participated in a joint solidarity mission to Haiti with Development and Peace. In their mission report, they note that, “Development and Peace has earned a reputation in Haiti for its sense of partnership, respect for the capacity of the local community, and insistence on a sustainable, long-term approach to projects.” The report can be found on the website of the CCCB, along with other interesting documents and links.
