Morocco-Canada: A “Historic” Relationship

The “historic” relationship between Canada and Morocco will enable the two countries to work together on major world issues,” said Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, François-Philippe Champagne, in Rabat this Friday. Canada and Morocco share many of the values that will guide their actions at the international level,” said Champagne during a press conference held at the end of his meetings with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Living Abroad, Nasser Bourita.

The two countries are complementary in many respects, especially in the area of peace and security, where they will continue to work together to fight terrorism and bring stability to the world, he said. “The Moroccan diaspora in Canada provides a solid foundation for a relationship that can be further developed to allow both peoples to benefit from closer ties, especially since this is the first time a Canadian foreign minister has visited Morocco,” Champagne noted, adding that each year Canada welcomes more than 3,000 students who return to Morocco each year and who represent the country’s best ambassadors.

In addition, Canada will launch two initiatives to assist civil society with no less than $14 million over five years, he said, adding that these will provide young people and women with labor market training, thus facilitating access to employment. “We will proceed in this direction with the signing of two agreements for the realization of these development projects,” Champagne concluded.
