Type of transfer payment: Contribution

Type of appropriation: Estimates

Fiscal year for terms and conditions: 2009-2010

Link to department’s Program Inventory: Program 18. Trade Policy, Agreements Negotiations, Agreements an Disputes

Description: The WTO is a cornerstone of Canada’s trade policy, providing a common set of rules, rights and obligations for the trade policies of its 164 members and a forum for Canada to advance its trade interests on the broadest possible basis. The WTO provides Canada with the opportunity to build alliances, influence rules and secure concessions on issues where it may otherwise have less leverage. Issues such as agriculture subsidies and regulatory concerns (e.g. sanitary and phytosanitary measures) are more effectively addressed multilaterally. The WTO also has a robust dispute settlement system, of which Canada is a regular user. Through the ongoing work of its many committees, the WTO provides a forum for Canada to raise and resolve a range of trade irritants and market access issues. Finally, the WTO is also an active forum for trade policy monitoring and surveillance.

WTO negotiations have been effectively stalled since 2008, with WTO members disagreeing on whether the mandates of the Doha Development Agenda (DDA) remain a relevant and viable basis from which to advance multilateral negotiations. Canada and other like-minded countries believe that the DDA mandates are no longer viable and that the WTO must explore new ways to conclude work on the outstanding Doha-round issues while also exploring issues not explicitly mentioned in the Doha mandates.  At the biennial Ministerial Conference in late 2015, WTO Ministers for the first time did not agree to renew the DDA mandate.

Expected Results:

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.

  2. to financially assist CICAD to fulfill its mandate in the fight against drugs at hemispheric levels; and
  3. to help enable Canada to maintain a visible and influential role in UNODC and CICAD.

The AVCs fund efforts to reduce demand for illicit drugs, reduce supply and availability of illicit drugs, strengthen the ability of the international community to address international crime, and support coordination of drug control through research, international policy development and evaluation. Addressing international crime includes crime prevention, criminal justice, criminal law reform (rule of law) including transnational organized crime, corruption, trafficking in persons, and terrorism prevention.

The AVCs include dedicated funds to UNODC in support of the United Nations Convention against Corruption.  A portion of AVC funding is also dedicated to support objectives within the Enforcement Pillar of Canada’s National Anti-Drug Strategy.

Gender-based Analysis Plus

Governance structures

Global Affairs Canada has a complex and diverse mandate as it manages Canada’s diplomatic and consular relations, promotes the country’s international trade and leads Canada’s international development and humanitarian assistance.  In support of this mandate, Global Affairs Canada uses a Government of Canada analytical tool called Gender-Based Analysis Plus (or simply GBA+).  GBA+ is an analytical tool that helps assess how diverse groups of women, men and gender-diverse people may experience policies, programs and initiatives. The “plus” in GBA+ acknowledges that GBA goes beyond biological (sex) and socio-cultural (gender) differences. We all have multiple identity factors that intersect to make us who we are; GBA+ also considers many other identity factors, like race, ethnicity, religion, age, and mental or physical disability.

In this context, Global Affairs Canada continues to explore opportunities to enhance its leadership, capacity, training and necessary tools for the implementation of GBA+ throughout the department.  The department has taken a de-centralized approach to the practice of GBA+ for its over 10,000 employees. In lieu of a central responsibility centre, the department continues to explore a more horizontal approach to the application of GBA+ assessments of submissions to ministers and Cabinet. As the subject matter experts, the proposal leads are ultimately responsible for the conclusions of their GBA+ assessments. Although the review process is essentially one of self-assessment, there are well established and dedicated resource centres of GBA+ expertise within the department, for example, within the Global Issues and Development branch. Global Affairs Canada is also increasing GBA+ competencies of subject matter experts in other branches working in such diverse areas as peace and security, and investment and trade.

Since 2016, and consistent with direction from the Privy Council Office and  Treasury Board Secretariat , the department has required mandatory GBA+ assessments for all Memoranda to Cabinet, Treasury Board submissions and Budget Proposals. Before these proposals can be considered complete, proposal leads submit their GBA+ assessments to the Corporate Secretariat for a final review to confirm that the mandatory requirements of the central agencies have been met. The offices of the ministers will not accept proposals without this final check.

Some of the ways the department uses to increase the profile of GBA+ include the following:

Human resources

Currently, the department has 13 full time equivalent(s) (FTE) dedicated to supporting gender analysis specifically for development assistance policies and programming, including implementation of the department’s Gender Equality Policy. Recognizing the significance of the application of GBA+ to trade agreements, there are now three FTE dedicated to this issue. There are also two and a half FTE dedicated to GBA+ implementation in the G7/G20 Summits division. An additional six to ten persons play various support roles associated with GBA+ as gender focal points, educators and managers across the department, including in areas such as peace and security, trade and investment, and GBA+ process oversight of submissions to Cabinet and ministers.

Both GBA+ specialists and subject matter experts from across the department contribute to GBA+ through participation on internal and external committees as well as in governance bodies:

Planned initiatives

Integration of GBA+ into free trade negotiations

Global Affairs Canada is seeking gender-related provisions throughout its free trade agreements, complemented by a stand-alone chapter on Gender and Trade to facilitate the increased participation of women in international trade and their economic empowerment.  To support this work, in 2018-19, Global Affairs Canada will develop a new framework to advance the application of GBA+ to free trade negotiations and provide related training to officials.  In addition, Global Affairs Canada will work with Statistics Canada and Status of Women Canada to develop a methodology to collect and analyze gender disaggregated data by occupational groups in industry sectors affected by an increase in trade, which will be useful in conducting GBA+.

Applying GBA+ to all G7 work under Canada’s 2018 Presidency

During his visit to the Charlevoix region in Quebec in June 2017, the Prime Minister announced that gender equality will be at the top of the G7 agenda during Canada’s Presidency in 2018. In addition to prioritizing gender equality and women’s empowerment as one of the five themes under Canada’s G7 Presidency, Canada will ensure that GBA+ is applied to all G7 work, including policies and initiatives, meetings and events, engagement with stakeholders and communications. Canada will also work with G7 partners to promote targeted gender equality commitments such as implementing the G7 Roadmap for a Gender-Responsive Economic Environment (G7 Roadmap); supporting women’s rights organizations and movements; and engaging men and boys as allies in addressing harmful social norms, violence and discrimination. In addition, on January 23, 2018, the Prime Minister announced the creation of the Gender Equality Advisory Council for Canada’s G7 Presidency. Co-chaired by Melinda Gates and Isabelle Hudon, Ambassador of Canada to France, the Council will present recommendations to the Canadian Presidency on applying a gender equality lens to ministerial meetings and the Leaders’ Summit; inform and participate in the G7 Women forum; and provide an outline of progress made on gender equality in 2018.

Global Affairs Canada’s G7/G20 Summits division has developed an action plan with clear lines of responsibility, concrete activities and outcomes for applying a GBA+ lens to all the work of the G7. The overarching goal is to deliver “more inclusive and gender–responsive G7 processes and outcomes in 2018”.

The four main pillars being tracked are:

Each pillar has associated indicators and targets to track progress and results, including expected results internal to Global Affairs Canada, such as applying GBA+ to communication products, engagement sessions and logistics. Canada is also working to drive outcomes at the international level in areas where Canada has an opportunity to build G7 consensus on advancing a gender equality agenda.

Strengthening GBA+ capacity at Global Affairs Canada and abroad

In 2018-19, Global Affairs Canada will increase the capacity of staff and partners to integrate GBA+ into policy development and programming. The departmental will build on the success of its GBA+ training sessions at missions, piloted in Central America (Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua) in December 2017. Over 150 people participated in the pilot training, including embassy staff, local and Canadian civil society organizations, government, and private sector companies. Case studies used during the pilot training sessions provided concrete examples of GBA+ application across the various stakeholder groups. The department will deliver additional GBA+ training and materials to meet the requests of governments and organizations in the region following the pilot training sessions.

In 2018-19, Global Affairs Canada will further promote GBA+ training at mission including by:

Summary of annual plans of recipient:

CIGI’s research program concentrates on global economic, security and international legal issues with a special crosscutting focus on international economics and trade, intellectual property and innovation, fostering national prosperity, and climate change.

One major program involves ensuring stability within the global economy, with an emphasis on the place of Canada in this dynamic. This stream of work addresses limitations in the way nations tackle shared economic challenges by focusing on global financial governance and sovereign debt management. Efforts touch on global forums (e.g. the G20) and international finance (e.g. central banks, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Financial Stability Board) with a view to the regulation and promotion of macro-economic coordination. CIGI also looks at China’s role in the global economy and how Canada can take advantage of growth in Asia. As a corollary, programming examines economies in crisis and the challenges of sovereign debt, to better understand how to preserve the stability of the global economic system and prevent contagion in the event of sovereign default. CIGI experts also seek innovative solutions to finance sustainable development and, in collaboration with the Institute for New Economic Thinking, are generating ideas to accelerate innovation, productivity and trade.

CIGI also undertakes an advanced program of research related to contemporary global security challenges. Work focuses on Internet governance and cyber security, specifically in the management of blockchain technology, the future of the Internet in China and the implementation of new modes of governance of the Internet within the D10 (Democratic 10) group of like-minded democratic states addressing global security and governance challenges. Within the overarching security program, CIGI also explores the linkages between regional and global security in the context of innovations in conflict management and prevention and effective governance. Geographic areas of concentration include the Arctic, the Asia-Pacific region, Africa, the greater Middle East and Central Asia. CIGI’s newest area of focus is international law, which, as a program, seeks to address the issues that are most important to global innovation, prosperity and sustainability. These include innovative approaches to intellectual property, the environment, and trade and finance.

CIGI is a partner on several new technology initiatives, including OpenCanada.org and ArcticDeeply.org, that sit at the intersection of public policy, scholarship and journalism to present and explain critical issues affecting Canada.
