Canadians’ perception of Canadian Aid expenditure

How does Canada compare with other countries?

In terms of percentage of Gross National Income (GNI) for the following six countries, only the United States of America is behind Canada in terms of global contributions

Today Canada’s aid contribution is nearing its lowest level in our country's history

50 years ago, prime minister pierre elliott trudeau made a promise:

Canada would hit the international target of 0.7% in order to make a significant contribution to ending extreme global poverty and improving the lives of people around the world.
