November 12, 2020 – Ottawa, Ontario – Department of Finance Canada

Canada’s international assistance seeks to eradicate poverty and to build a more peaceful, inclusive, and prosperous world. Canada firmly believes that promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls is the most effective way to achieve this goal.

Today, the Department of Finance launched its 2020 consultations on development assistance, which seeks Canadians’ views on the international assistance contributions made by the Department of Finance and whether they meet the criteria stated under the Official Development Assistance Accountability Act.

In addition, the department would like to hear from Canadians about their views on the Report for Parliament on the Government of Canada’s International Assistance 2018-2019. The 2018-2019 International Assistance Report was the first time that all of Canada’s international assistance was presented in a single, consolidated international assistance report, and included reporting pursuant to the Bretton Woods and Related Agreements Act, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Agreement Act and the Official Development Assistance Accountability Act, in accordance with the Government of Canada’s Budget 2018 commitment.

Canadians are invited to review the consultation document and the backgrounder, and submit their input by December 23th, 2020.
