Long-term Development Assistance
Following the coup d'état that occurred in Mali on March 22, 2012, Canada suspended its direct assistance to the Government of Mali.
However, Canada maintains its development cooperation through multilateral and global partners as well as through Canadian and local non-governmental organizations. In addition, Canada continues to provide humanitarian assistance to Malians affected by the conflict and drought.
On January 29, 2013, Canada announced, in a high-level international meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the increase of its humanitarian assistance in Mali by $13 million. These funds are being used to provide food and nutrition assistance, emergency health care, water and sanitation, and shelter.
New investments worth $75 million were announced in Brussels on May 15 at the International Donors' conference on Mali that will help mitigate the risk of social unrest and provide basic services in health, food security, nutrition and education.
In total, Canada has provided 107.5M$ in support to Mali since April 1, 2012.
