Consultations on Canada’s international assistance review

On May 18, 2016, Global Affairs Canada launched a review and public consultations process focused on renewing Canada’s international assistance policy, programming and funding framework.

The primary objective of the review is to determine how best to orient Canada’s international assistance on helping the poorest and most vulnerable populations, and supporting fragile states. The review will consider both the “what” of our international assistance, and the “how” of our approach, including ways to enable greater innovation and effectiveness in our policies, mechanisms and partnerships. The review will result in a set of evidence-based recommendations to Government, informing both Canada’s approach to international assistance and our international implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

All Canadians are invited to participate in this review from May to July 2016.
