Canada’s development priorities
The Government of Canada continues to demonstrate global leadership in advocating for the rights of women and girls through its Feminist International Assistance Policy (2017), which places gender equality at the center of its international programming. Among the policy’s targets are ending sexual and gender-based violence and harmful practices; increasing access to healthcare 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; support to the UNFPA-UNICEF Global Programme to End Child Marriage; as well as midwifery projects.
Gender equality is at the heart of Canada’s international assistance, because we believe that providing opportunities can help unlock the incredible potential of women and girls. Through our longstanding partnership with UNFPA, millions of women and girls have gained access to sexual and reproductive health and rights, helping them live with safety and dignity, and pursue fulfilling opportunities for themselves and their families.The Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of International Development of Canada
