Global Affairs Canada is the Canadian government’s lead agency for international development, foreign policy and trade. Global Affairs Canada works with development partners, like Plan International, across public and private sectors, and with key multilateral partners to support countries and regions in times of crisis, and to help fulfil the rights of the world’s poorest, most marginalized people. Plan International Canada has been a partner of Global Affairs Canada (formerly CIDA) since 1974, and remains a committed partner.
