Bigger than our Borders stands with an umbrella group of NGOs calling on the Canadian government to maintain its current levels of international aid funding and commit to a predictable, three-year increase in its 2023 budget.
After launching a foreign aid strategy in 2017 focused on the empowerment of women and girls, Canada’s international assistance is at a pivotal moment.
Economic pressure and the post-pandemic context could prompt the Canadian government to cut foreign aid or bring it back closer to pre-pandemic levels. At the same time, global needs for foreign aid are increasing dramatically. Civil society across the country is united in calling for the Canadian government to stay on track and commit to a predictable three-year increase for #Budget2023.
