This report provides a sense of Canada’s development footprint beyond aid. It does this by drawing on data from The North South-Institute’s Canadian International Development Platform (CIDP) which comprises the most recent data on aid, trade, investment, and migrant remittance flows between Canada and developing countries. The report contributes to ongoing debates on the role and policy space for aid policy and development practitioners in a world where poverty is falling rapidly, and the geography of poverty is changing rapidly. How can aid policy be positioned alongside trade, investment, and migration policies, not only to ensure greater coherence but also enhance development impact?
The report highlights key policy dilemmas that make achieving coherence across this broad range of policy areas problematic.
