Question by Kevin7: can someone tell me about Chad-Canada foreign relations?
Answer by Cheetah
Chad is represented in Canada by an Embassy in Washington, D.C., U.S.A.
Bilateral relations between Canada and Chad are limited. However the two countries collaborate in various multilateral forums including La Francophonie.
Canada supports efforts to re-establish peace, security and political dialogue in the region. The conflicts between the government and rebel groups, the humanitarian crisis at the border between Chad and Sudan (Darfur region) as well as the tensions between the two countries contribute to the instability of the region. Canada encourages Chad and Soudan to continue to normalise their relations.
Canadian aid in Chad is mainly of a humanitarian nature and is dispensed through multilateral and international organisations channels such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nation World Food Program (WFP) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) provides training grants to Tchad through the Canadian Francophonie Grants Program. Canada also finances local projects through the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives, which is managed by the Canadian High Commission in Yaoundé, Cameroon.
Canada actively supports regional initiatives that promote the sustainable management of Africa’s forests ecosystems and in which Chad takes part such as the Congo Basin Forest Partnership and the Central African Forest Commission.
Canada-Chad commercial relations are limited.
