The Canadian thing to do!

Despite being the strongest economy in the G7, on average, Canada invests 37% less on international assistance than other G7 countries. In fact, our investments have dropped by 12% since 2010. As Canadians, we must do more! MORE to help the 766 million people are living in extreme poverty. MORE for the women and girls who are the most affected by extreme poverty. Poverty is sexist!

New investments in international assistance present a massive opportunity. They can help women and girls thrive by improving access to education, land rights and financial services for those who need them most. Let’s help women and girls in the global south by getting Canada to do its fair share.

Dear Prime Minister, I agree - poverty is sexist! Please take concrete action to support girls and women living in extreme poverty and ensure that Canada lives up to its commitments. You should implement a plan that puts Canada on track to doing its fair share by increasing international assistance funding. Empowering girls and women isn’t just the right thing to do… it’s the smart thing to do.
