Canada’s development priorities

The Government of Canada has demonstrated global leadership in advocating for the rights of women and girls by adopting a Feminist International Assistance Policy, which places gender equality at the center of its international programming. Among the policy’s targets are ending sexual and gender-based violence; increasing access to health-care services including family planning and modern contraception; sexuality education; safe and legal abortion; the prevention and treatment of HIV; access to justice for women and girls; and prevention and response to sexual violence in conflict zones.

UNFPA’s work with Canada

Specific areas of collaboration with Canada include: sexual and reproductive health and rights activities in Africa and in humanitarian and conflict-affected areas in Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan and Syria; support to UNFPA Supplies, which provides contraceptives and strengthens health systems in developing countries; efforts to end gender-based violence in the Middle East; as well as midwifery projects.

 
Karina Gould, Minister of International Development
Investing in the health of women and girls benefits everyone. Around the world, UNFPA works to guarantee sexual and reproductive health and rights for everyone, and the organization has been a crucial partner in our mission to ensure gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. Together, our work will ensure that women and girls have a right to control their own lives, bodies, and futures.
Karina Gould, Minister of International Development
