"This is a bad, a awful crime and Canada is absolutely committed to working with the authorities in Burkina Faso to bring those responsible to justice", Freeland told reporters Thursday morning. "Our first thought is with his family and friends who received really awful news". "Not a day will go by that he won't be missed", he said in a statement that was posted on the CBCnews website.
Condemning the killing as a "terrible crime", Freeland added, "Canada condemns those responsible for this awful crime".
Earlier this month, another Canadian man and an Italian woman went missing in Burkina, the security minister said.
Woodman was later found dead the following day, 100 kilometres from the worksite in Oudalan province he was taken from.
The groups are believed to be responsible for more than 270 deaths since 2015. He was based in Nova Scotia and had previous experience working in Africa.
Alpha Barry, Burkina Faso's minister of foreign affairs and co-operation, condemned the killing and called it a "cowardly assassination".
Friend and veteran exploration geologist, David Duncan, described Woodman as talented, but said their jobs have become increasingly unsafe due to the rise of militants. "We talked about Edith and I think they are reassured that our government is doing what needs to be done in such circumstances", she said.
