For the first time, part of the humanitarian assistance aid from Canada will go to the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon for security purposes.

In an audience granted him by Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute on April 10, 2019, the Assistant Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada in charge of sub Saharan Africa Leslie Northon announced Canada’s aid to Cameroon for 2019 will be 6.65milion Dollars.

The aid is meant for the Far North, East and newly added North West and South West regions of Cameroon.

Reportedly concerned with the situation the people in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon are facing, Canada’s High Commissioner to Cameroon Nathalie O’Neil added that Canada will continue to support the refugees and internally displaced persons in the Far North Region as well as in the East.

Discussions between Prime Minister Dion Ngute and the Canadian Government officials equally focused on trade issues.
