Crowds continue to gather outside the Canadian embassy in Port-au-Prince - Haitians hoping to escape the city more than a week after it was rocked by a massive earthquake.
Authorities says a staggering two million people are homeless while thousands are still without a steady supply of food and water.
Outside the capital, members of Canada's Disaster Assistance Response Team are in the quake-ravaged town of Jacmel, while Canadian soldiers in the town of Leogane are continuing efforts to help.
With heavy equipment coming from Port-au-Prince, Canada and Jamaica, DART hopes to be pumping potable water in Jacmel within the next few days.
In Leogane, a contingent of troops from HMCS Halifax continues to treat patients for secondary infections and to stem the spread of disease, still a primary concern.
The task of rebuilding Leogane will likely fall to members of the Royal 22e Regiment from CFB Valcartier, who are already arriving in the region.
