Canadian International Assistance – Dismal Performance

Canadian Aid Performance Declines in 2006: The OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) released preliminary statistics for ODA for 2006 and
Canada
is near the bottom, tied with
Australia
for 15th  position among 22 donors.   At 0.30% of our Gross National Income (GNI) in 2006,  
Canada
  is down from 0.34% in 2005.  In both years, Canadian aid, along with other donors, has been affected by the inclusion of high debt cancellation for
Iraq
and several African countries.  When debt cancellation is removed from Canadian ODA, performance drops to 0.28% in 2006, down from 0.30% in 2005.
