International Aid Transparency Initiative

The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI)  aims to make information about aid spending easier to find, use and compare. Canada became a member of IATI in November 2011.   Global Affairs Canada (GAC) first published data sets formatted in accordance with the IATI Standard (hereafter called “IATI files”) in October 2012.

GAC uses IATI files in the Project Browser. Some elements of the IATI files are not available on the Project Browser. We continue to improve the Project Browser, and we may add them over time.

We publish bilingual IATI files to ease data analysis. We use codes rather than words wherever possible. For example, we use the country code “PE” rather than “Peru” and “Pérou”. Find out what the codes mean in the IATI codelists.

GAC publishes three IATI files
