Furthermore, the Embassy of Haiti in Canada announces that “the Haitian flag will once again fly from the mast of the Niagara town hall, on Friday, May 27, 2024. This event will mark a symbolic moment within the framework of the 221 years of the Haitian flag, created in Arcaha├»e on May 18, 1803.

The Embassy of Haiti would like to express its gratitude to the municipal authorities of Niagara for having responded favorably since 2021 to the request of Ambassador Weibert Arthus to declare May 18 “Haiti Day” in the city of Niagara. This initiative, which is being renewed this year this Friday, May 17, testifies to the excellence of the friendly relations between Canada and Haiti.”
