The International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Government of Canada are building centers in Haiti to assist deportees from the Dominican Republic.

The Border Resource Centers seek to guarantee a dignified and safe return of Haitian migrants to their country.

The venues will operate in the border towns of Anse-à-Pîtres, Belladère, Malpasse and Ouanaminthe, and already have received the collaboration of the Institute of Welfare and Research (IBESR) and the Ministry of Social Affairs, among other organizations.

Carlos Rojas-Arbulu, head of Canadian Cooperation in Haiti, said his nation is committed to implementing these centers to identify the women, girls and boys who need to be served and directed to the appropriate protection services.

According to the IOM, from June 2015 to September 28,  229,885 Haitians have been deported from the Dominican Republic
