Federal Budget 2012

October 3, 2011

The 2012/13 Federal Budget is expected to be the second year of an announced four-year freeze on the International Assistance Envelope at $5 billion. The Government had adopted previous (Liberal) commitments to raise aid prior to 2010, but then implemented the aid freeze. The 2011 budget did not even mention aid. With the freeze for Canadian aid in effect, it is expected that ODA for 2012/13 will be approximately $5,440 billion or 0.30% of Canadian GNI, down from 0.37% in 2010/11. By 2014 the performance ratio is expected to be 0.28%, among the lowest of 22 official donors.

The government has spent the last several years focusing on enhancing the quality and effectiveness of Canadian aid – and has made some strides forward. This 2012/13 budget provides an excellent opportunity to announce a long-term plan for the future growth of Canadian aid to achieve the UN target of 0.7%, support the first replenishment of the Education for All - Fast Track Initiative and enhance commitments to climate change financing.
