Pre-Budget Consultations

November 2, 2009

CCIC submitted its 2010-11 Federal Budget brief  to the Standing Committee of Finance in the context of the pre-budget consultations. CCIC recommended that the next Federal Budget set out a clear plan to increase Canadian Official Development Assistance (ODA) over the next ten years to reach the United Nations aid spending target of 0.7% of GNI. The budget should also indicate how the government will meet its commitment to double aid by 2010-11. According to CCIC estimates, current spending would not be enough to meet this commitment and total ODA would be more than $600 million short of the doubling target. The government should also make a renewed long-term commitment to address growing poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa.
