Appraising Canadian Development Assistance before and after CIDA
In 2013, the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), an organization vested with administering foreign aid programs in developing countries, was folded into the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. This capstone will assess the impact of this administrative change on Canada’s development assistance strategy and recipient countries. It will also shed light on whether the decision to merge CIDA into the Department of Foreign Affairs has contributed negatively or positively to Canadian development assistance, all of which will ideally inform future development assistance policy initiatives and governance of development aid.
