The data above allows analysis of Canadian aid spending at the project level. The data cover fiscal years 2005-06 to 2019-20. The data are drawn directly from Global Affairs Canada (GAC) open data sources including historical and project browser feeds, as well as from the OECD-DAC Creditor Reporting System.
Dashboard panels can be used to export data directly to Excel, as PDF or image files, using the “Download” options.
What the data show
At the aggregate level, the data indicate that GAC project level spending increased slightly from $4.6 billion in 2018-19 to $4.9 billion in 2019-20.
The share of aid projects being delivered through multilateral organisations is approximately 57%.
The share of Canadian non-profits in 2019/2020 has remained relatively stead at 19% when compared to 2018/2019 at 20%.
Assistance that targets the government and civil Society sector, at approximately 20%, comprises the largest share of GAC aid projects. This represents a five percentage point increase over the previous fiscal year. It is followed by the projects targeting emergency responses (20%) and health (9%).
How to use this data
The interactive view above presents a substantial amount of dis-aggregated data, and is therefore split in two panels; the main Explorer (default view) and the Data Sheet, which is populated by making selections using the main explorer.
Hovering over a country gives the option to click for country details, which switches the view to the more detailed data sheet, for the particular country, region or other selection made.
A set of drop down menus are provided to further navigate the Explorer. The data and view can be limited by a specific sector, by a class of organization delivering projects (e.g. civil society, multilateral etc) or location (Canadian or non-Canadian). Or by searching or selecting a specific organization by name.
Detailed data in the Data Sheet pane can be called up for any selection: a country, comparison of multiple countries, sector, type or location of partner organization.
