Canada has provided approximately $4.3 million in funding to 47 organizations through the 2019-2020 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Funding Program. The SDG Funding Program is a federal grants and contributions program that supports the work of Canadian organizations advancing the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda in Canada.
Through the 2019-2020 SDG Funding Program, the Government of Canada is helping to strengthen the work of not-for-profit organizations, provinces and territories, municipalities, academia, the private sector, members of indigenous communities and racialized communities, women, children and youth and vulnerable and marginalized populations, to deliver improved outcomes for Canadians.
Minister Families, Children and Social Development, Honourable Ahmed Hussen said, “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides the world with a common framework to tackle our most pressing challenges. As we face the unprecedented challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, working together to help our fellow Canadians is now more important than ever. Many communities across Canada are already advancing the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. By fostering partnerships through the SDG Funding Program, the Government of Canada is accelerating progress on the SDGs and delivering better outcomes for all Canadians, leaving no one behind.”
The 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) presents Canada, and the world, with a historic opportunity to positively shape how societies of tomorrow grow and develop sustainably and inclusively for the shared benefit of all.
