Feminist International Assistance Policy Guidance Notes

Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy seeks to eradicate poverty and build a more peaceful, inclusive and prosperous world. To support the Policy’s implementation, Global Affairs Canada has developed a suite of how-to guidance notes. The guidance notes below outline how Canada will shift its international assistance processes and practices to be more effective, integrated, responsive and innovative.
