Canada Commits $4.5 Billion to International Development Efforts

OTTAWA - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has reaffirmed Canada's commitment to international development as International Development Week kicks off, running from February 4 to 10, 2024.

In his statement, Trudeau emphasized the importance of reflecting on past achievements while acknowledging the challenges ahead in building a sustainable and equitable global community. He praised the dedication of Canadian development workers, volunteers, and partners who play a crucial role in supporting marginalized communities worldwide.

Canada's commitment to advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) remains steadfast, with Trudeau announcing a significant increase in development aid. The Canadian government has pledged $4.5 billion to ensure that communities, particularly women and girls, have the resources needed to reach their full potential. A substantial portion of this funding, totaling an average of $1.4 billion annually, will be dedicated to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health programs in line with the Feminist International Assistance Policy.

Trudeau urged Canadians to engage with International Development Week by learning more about Canada's international development efforts, participating in local community activities, and joining the conversation on social media using the hashtags #IDW2024 and #GoForTheGoals.

As Canada continues to prioritize climate action, inclusive communities, and global prosperity, International Development Week serves as a reminder of the collective responsibility to work towards a safer and more secure future for all.
