Chapter 6 of Canada’s 4th Biennial Report provides more information on support recently provided by Canada to developing countries.

Canada’s climate finance is also reported through other Government of Canada’s reports including the Report to Parliament on the Government of Canada’s International Assistance, the Statistical Reports on International Assistance, and Canada’s report to the OECD Development Assistance Committee on international assistance flows provided by Canadian governments (federal, provincial and municipal).
