The Canada-IFAD partnership

Canada and IFAD have a long-standing partnership to end poverty and hunger. Both are invested in inclusive and sustainable rural transformation, particularly for impoverished populations. Canada’s development priorities and IFAD’s mandate are strongly aligned on women’s empowerment and climate change.

Canada is a founding member of IFAD, a top donor to the Fund and is strongly engaged in IFAD’s governance, being a member of the Executive Board, of the Working Group on the Performance-based Allocation System, and of the Convenors and Friends of IFAD’s Executive Board.
