Canada ranks above average on the aid component, mainly due to its high score on aid quality, where it ranks fourth. Canada spends 68 percent of its aid bilaterally and 32 percent multilaterally. It scores the best of any CDI country on indicators relating to transparency and learning for its bilateral aid. Canada’s multilateral aid quality score is helped by relatively large contributions to the International Development Association (IDA) and the Global Fund, which score well among multilateral agencies. On aid quantity, however, there is room for improvement: in 2017, Canada provided 0.26 percent of its GNI for development assistance. This is under the average for CDI countries and well below the international commitment of 0.7 percent GNI.
