NAT025 – (Foreign-Aid)
OTTAWA. x–14s. Canada is one of the world’s top donors for foreign aid, but new data shows that nearly one-fifth of the spending goes toward refugees and Ukrainians within Canada. That’s according to analysis from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, a club of mostly rich countries, which found that 19 per cent of Canada’s aid money is spent at home. University of Ottawa professor Christina Clark-Kazak says Canada is abiding by the rules in how it reports data, which shows how people around the world are fleeing wars and disasters linked to climate change.
