Backgrounder: Canada’s humanitarian support for Ukraine


Today, Canada launched a matching fund of up to $10 million that will amplify support from Canadians and reinforce the response of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement as it addresses the humanitarian needs stemming from the recent escalation of hostilities in Ukraine.

In addition to this funding, on January 26, 2022, Canada announced that it would provide an additional $15 million in humanitarian funding to Ukraine.

The additional $15 million in humanitarian funding has been allocated to experienced humanitarian partners, including the UN’s Ukraine Humanitarian Fund, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Committee of the Red Cross. The funding will support the provision of protection assistance, emergency health services, water, sanitation, shelter and food.
