End Date: March 31, 2014 (one-year extension from March 31, 2013)

Fiscal Year for Terms and Conditions: 2010-11

Strategic Outcome: CANADA'S INTERNATIONAL AGENDA - The international agenda is shaped to Canada's benefit and advantage in accordance with Canadian interests and values.

Programs: Diplomacy and Advocacy

Description: Sourced from the Peace and Security Pool of the International Assistance Envelope (IAE), the Global Peace and Security Fund (GPSF) funds the operations of the Stabilization and Reconstruction Task Force (START) and is used to conduct international assistance programming in fragile and conflict-ffected states such as Afghanistan, Haiti and Sudan. START and the GPSF were originally created to fill a policy, institutional and funding gap between CIDA humanitarian and long-term development assistance and DND's military and training assistance. START has effectively played a role, and established itself as a platform to facilitate whole-of-government engagement as well as policy development where appropriate.

GPSF programming provides timely, focused, effective and accountable international assistance in response to critical peace and security challenges which implicate Canadian interests and reflect Canadian foreign policy priorities. GPSF programming includes both transfer and non-transfer payments. Non-transfer payment programming enables DFAIT to work closely with federal departments to provide beneficiary states and civilian components of multilateral peace operations with critical expertise in the areas of security and justice system reform.

The GPSF is managed by START. To ensure policy coherence and to avoid duplication, various interdepartmental and intradepartmental committees (deputy minister, assistant deputy minister and director general levels) are called upon as required to inform and guide emerging priority-setting exercises and implement Cabinet-mandated priorities in the whole-of-government context. START is located in DFAIT's International Security Branch (IFM), which is responsible for START's financial, human and physical resources.

Recipients are not required to repay funds obtained under this transfer payment program.

  • Evidence of functioning security and justice sector institutions;
  • Evidence of effective participation of civil society;
  • Evidence of better coordination among national and international actors;

Strengthened international responses to specific crisis situations, as measured by:

  • Evidence that capacity-building initiatives targeting international and regional peacekeeping institutions have led to effective stabilization and reconstruction;
  • Evidence of improved international and regional responses to crisis situations;
  • Evidence of improved security;
  • Evidence of better coordination among national and international actors.

Strengthened international frameworks for addressing crisis situations, as measured by:

  • Evidence that adherence to international norms, principles and best practices aligned with Canadian priorities, interests and values have led to improved crises responses;
  • Evidence that norms, principles and best practices aligned with Canadian priorities, interest and values have led to improved crises responses;
  • Evidence that norms, principles and best practices aligned with Canadian priorities have been adopted by the international community.

Programs: Diplomacy and Advocacy

Description: Canada's annual assessed contribution to NATO is a legally binding obligation of membership, based on the 1949 North Atlantic Treaty. Canada's contribution furthers its foreign policy goals by funding the administrative budget of NATO, an international organization vital to Canadian defence and security interests.

The NATO civil administration supports the process of consensus building and decision making among alliance members and manages NATO's relations with its partners. NATO's civil budget also supports the work of various NATO agencies with specialized responsibilities. An effective and efficient NATO civil administration assists alliance members in promoting security and stability in the North Atlantic area and in responding effectively to current security challenges, particularly in Afghanistan. NATO accounts are subject to annual audit by the International Board of Auditors for NATO.

Strategic Outcome: CANADA'S INTERNATIONAL AGENDA - The international agenda is shaped to Canada's benefit and advantage in accordance with Canadian interests and values.

Programs: Diplomacy and Advocacy

Description: Canada's annual assessed contribution to the OSCE is an obligation arising from our membership in what has become the world's largest regional security organization, with 57 participating States from North America, Europe, and Eurasia. Canada's contribution furthers our foreign policy goals related to human rights, fundamental freedoms, fragile states, democratization, conflict prevention, arms control, and post-conflict development. This is achieved by funding capacity-building programs implemented by the OSCE Secretariat, its three specialized Institutions, and its 16 Field Operations located in some of the more fragile states in the Balkans, Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and Central Asia.

Canada's OSCE contributions also include payments made to administer and implement two legally-binding Conventional Arms Control regimes to which Canada is State Party: the Treaty on Open Skies (for which Canada is a Treaty Co-Depository, together with Hungary) and the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE), as well as the politically-binding Vienna Document.

The OSCE is a primary regional instrument for early warning, conflict prevention, and crisis management and post-conflict rehabilitation. In addition to its security and stability work, it provides a platform for Treaty implementation for regional Conventional Arms Control and for Confidence and Security-building measures. The OSCE Parliamentary Assembly also provides the political impetus and leadership for spreading democracy norms throughout the region

The OSCE Unified Budget is approved by the OSCE Permanent Council on a yearly basis and by consensus. It supports the programs and activities of the OSCE Secretariat (in Vienna), its Institutions (Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights in Warsaw, High Commissioner on National Minorities in The Hague, and Representative on Freedom of the Media in Vienna), as well as its 16 Field Operations.

The OSCE's governance mechanisms include internal and external oversight. Namely, the OSCE's accounts are subject to an annual report by the External Auditor and by an independent Audit Committee, as well as by the OSCE Office of Internal Oversight. All three audit reports are made available to participating States.

Recipients are not required to repay funds obtained under this transfer payment program.

Expected Results:

  • Effective and timely implementation of the decisions of the OSCE Permanent Council as measured by the Organization's successful work and progress on such issues of importance to Canada as: election monitoring, democracy-building; good governance; tolerance and non-discrimination (including LGBT and combating anti-Semitism); safeguarding fundamental freedoms (including religious freedoms and online); combating human trafficking; counter-terrorism and extremism; as well as enhanced engagement with key OSCE Partners.
  • Continuous monitoring of the security and stability situation in Europe as measured by the OSCE's regular reporting and early warning function provided by the Organization's Centre for Conflict Prevention, its specialized Institutions, and its Field Operations. In this connection, the OSCE's work and engagement in the region's three protracted conflicts (i.e. Nagorno-Karabakh, Moldova-Transnistria, and Georgia's secessionist regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia) contribute to promoting dialogue and lowering tensions.
  • Concerted programming to actively contribute to conflict prevention, conflict resolution and post-conflict institution building as measured by the successful implementation of Ministerial Decisions which strengthen the OSCE's conflict prevention toolkit, especially in the key areas of early warning and mediation. In addition, the newly created Transnational Threats Unit consolidates and coordinates the OSCE's work on counter-terrorism, border security, policing, and anti-trafficking.
  • Proper management of the organization's resources as measured by the audit reports on the OSCE's financial statements , by the renewed efforts of the OSCE Secretary General to enhance the Organization's accountability and transparency, and by the adoption by consensus in 2011 of a zero-nominal-growth Unified Budget for the third year in a row.

Strategic Outcome: CANADA'S INTERNATIONAL AGENDA - The international agenda is shaped to Canada's benefit and advantage in accordance with Canadian interests and values. as referemced in the Global Markets Action Plan.

Programs: Diplomacy and Advocacy

Description: The purpose of this program is to pay the assessed contribution for Canada's membership in the WTO.

The WTO provides the only multilateral forum for negotiating market access and other trade rules. It also provides the best forum for monitoring the implementation of obligations and commitments under various trade agreements, reviewing Members' trade policies and practices, and discussing trade-related issues that inhibit the free, fair and predictable flow of trade.

The WTO is the only organization offering a state-to-state dispute settlement system whereby trade disputes are settled based on commonly agreed-on rules, rather than on political or economic power. Through these agreements, 159 WTO Members operate a non-discriminatory trading system that spells out their rights and obligations. Each country receives guarantees that its exports will be treated fairly and consistently in other countries' markets. Each promises to do the same for imports into its own market.

Recipients are not required to repay funds obtained under this transfer payment program.

Expected Results:

  • As a trade-dependent country, Canada has been actively involved in all areas of the current round of WTO negotiations, known as the Doha Development Agenda, measured by WTO reports and concluded negotiations (for example, the Bali Package that includes a Trade Facilitation Agreement and outcomes in agriculture and development: https://mc9.wto.org/draft-bali-ministerial-declaration);
  • Canada continues to work with other WTO Members to find constructive ways to engage in multilateral discussions among WTO Members on issues facing the global trading system, both inside and outside the Doha Agenda, as measured by WTO reports (including committee reports) and the progress in WTO negotiations (for example, the Bali Package);
  • Canada participates in the accession negotiations for all countries seeking to join the WTO, as well as in the reviews of WTO Members, and is itself reviewed every four years;
  • Canada is one of the most active participants in the WTO dispute settlement system, as measured by the number of disputes in which Canada is a participant (During the 2012-2013 fiscal year, Canada was a party to three disputes and involved in 10 disputes as a third party).

Note: International organizations' governance mechanisms include oversight services. DFATD will rely upon these oversight regimes to assist in monitoring the WTO's accountability for achieving objectives agreed to by its Members and for stewardship of its funds, which are contributed by Member states, including Canada.

The WTO annual report provides a comprehensive overview of WTO activities over the past year and includes information on the organization's budget and staffing. It can be found at: wto.org/english/res_e/reser_e/annual_report_e.htm.

Canada, as a Member of the WTO, also has access to all audits, evaluations and performance reviews completed by or on behalf of the WTO.

Name of TPP: OECD Steel Committee (formerly International Commodity Organizations) (voted by Parliament)

Main objective: For more than three decades, the OECD Steel Committee, which was originally established in recognition of the special nature of the global steel market and its potential for precipitating trade frictions, has provided participants with a forum through which they could exchange views on commercial and policy developments in their own as well as in global steel markets. In addition, the Committee provides participants with regular statistical and analytical reports on such developments. These exchanges and reports have proved invaluable in providing steel producing countries with a context within which to make representations on developments in other producing markets which may be distorting the international market. In this context, Canada often questions steel and steel-related policies and developments in other countries, usually in concert or after consultation with NAFTA and other government delegations.
