Video script - International Development Week - February 7 to 13, 2021

Hi everyone, I’m thrilled to celebrate our 31st International Development Week.

It’s been quite a year.

As the world came together in the fight against COVID-19, this year has shown us how connected we all are.

With clarity all Canadians saw how a health emergency on one side of the globe could completely transform their lives.

We know, now more than ever, we are all in this together.

This year, as we reflect on the long road ahead towards beating COVID-19, the UN Sustainable Development Goals still provide the path towards building a better world.

A world that is healthier, more equitable, sustainable and prosperous.

As Canadians, even in the midst of a pandemic, we will continue to stand up, make a positive difference in the world and change lives for the better.

This International Development Week, we bring together Canadians from coast, to coast, to coast to share and celebrate our contributions to international development assistance, and our determination to make a better world.

So let’s Go for the Goals together! Happy International Development Week Canada.
