Open Data

On March 17, 2011, the Government of Canada launched an Open Data portal. As part of that effort, statistical data and other information on Canada's international assistance and the former Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) activities are available in data sets and machine-readable formats for researchers, students, media or anyone interested in international assistance. Each data set has its own definitions and they are not often comparable — please review the data field definitions carefully before downloading the data sets. Links to related reports and other data sources are also provided.
