Canada: Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced that His Highness the Aga Khan will make an official visit to Canada later this month. During his visit, the Aga Khan will meet with Prime Minister Harper, who has invited him to deliver an historic address to Parliament. Such addresses are usually reserved for heads of state and is an honour reserved for a handful of extraordinary people who have a special relationship with Canada.
It is to remember that Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) has made several successful interventions in Gilgit-Baltistan in the area of rural economic and social development, health and education with the support of Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).
