Canadian Treaty Series
E101973 - CTS 1981 No. 16
EXCHANGE OF NOTES BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA AND THE GOVERNMENT OF HAITI TO PROVIDE FOR THE EXCHANGE OF THIRD PARTY COMMUNICATION BETWEEN AMATEUR RADIO STATIONS OF CANADA AND HAITI
The Ambassador of Canada to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and Cults of Haiti
PORT-AU-PRINCE, February 16, 1981
His Excellency Edouard Francisque
Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and Cults
I have the honour to propose to Your Excellency that an Agreement be concluded between our two Governments to permit amateur radio stations of Canada and Haiti to exchange messages or other communications from or to third parties under the following conditions:
Amateur stations of Canada and Haiti may exchange messages or other communications from or to third parties, provided:
(a) the amateur stations exchanging such third party communications are not paid any direct or indirect compensation therefore; and
(b) such communications shall be limited to conversation or messages of a technical or personal nature, for which, by reason of their unimportance, recourse to the public telecommunications service is not justified.
If the Government of Haiti is prepared to accept the foregoing provisions, I have the honour to suggest that this Note, which is authentic in English and French, and your reply thereto shall constitute an Agreement between our two countries which shall enter into force fifteen days after the date of Your Excellency’s reply. This agreement shall be subject to termination at any time, on sixty days’ notice in writing by either country.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
Howard B. Singleton
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Haiti to the Ambassador of Canada

(See Canadian Note no. 43 of February 16, 1981)
It is my pleasure to inform you that the Government of Haiti agrees with the propositions mentioned above. The Canadian Embassy’s note and this note in reply expressing the agreement of the Government of Haiti constitute an agreement between our two Governments.
I take this opportunity to renew to you, Mr. Ambassador, the assurances of my highest consideration.
Minister of Foreign Affairs
