UNICEF public partner
A long-term supporter of UNICEF’s work, Canada regularly ranks among our top ten public partners. The Canadian Government is a passionate advocate for women and girls around the world, and its efforts to improve their well-being – as enshrined in its Feminist International Assistance Policy – align well with UNICEF’s Gender Action Plan. Both recognize that promoting the empowerment of women and girls makes countries more peaceful, prosperous and inclusive.
Canada provides critical support to UNICEF humanitarian and development programmes, especially in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia.
In 2018, Canada was the ninth largest public-sector resource partner to UNICEF – with total support of nearly US$150 million – and the eighth largest humanitarian resource partner overall. The Canadian Government increased its overall commitment to multi-year funding, which allows for the long-term planning needed to tackle complex issues like gender inequality. The Canadian Government is part of the agreement to increase multi-year planning and funding, and reduce earmarking in humanitarian crises.
Canada’s contribution of almost US$50 million in multi-year funding (2018─2021) to a vital category of funds, Regular Resources, stands out. These unearmarked funds enable UNICEF to respond quickly in emergencies and reach the most vulnerable children.

In 2018, we increased access to secondary-level education for 1,273 girls in underserved areas in Iraq by establishing two new schools for girls in Thi Qar and Baghdad.
