pre-budget consultations for the 2024 Federal Budget

By: Results Canada Published: 04/08/2023

Canada has an opportunity to play a leading role in the fight to eradicate extreme poverty. This requires that the Government step-up to address immediate and acute crises and remains a reliable and consistent development partner over the long term. 

With Canadian Foodgrains Bank, Results Canada has developed six recommendations for the 2024 federal budget on how Canada can achieve this goal despite the global setbacks which persist due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

recommendation 1:

That the Government commit to increase the International Assistance Envelope to at least CA$8.5 billion, in line with the Government’s commitment to increase international development assistance every year toward 2030 to realize the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  

recommendation 2:

That the Government publish an annual, detailed and forward-looking budget for the International Assistance Envelope adhering to best practices recommended by the International Aid Transparency Initiative. 

recommendation 3:

That the Government provide immediate support for low- and middle-income countries experiencing food insecurity and nutrition crises by investing additional funding in mechanisms like the World Bank’s Crisis Response Window and UNICEF’s Child Nutrition Fund. 

recommendation 4:

That the Government of Canada commit to topping-up its 2023 Federal Budget by investing an additional $500 million over five years to global education to fulfill Canada’s commitment to invest new resources to support access to education for girls, refugees, internally displaced children and those living with disabilities. 

recommendation 5:

That the Government reaffirm its commitment to ending tuberculosis globally by investing Canada’s fair share to TB research and development and innovations annually to improve tools to prevent, treat and diagnose TB.
