ONE reacts to Canada’s 2022 Budget

News, ONE

“One of the saving graces in this budget, is the fact that Canada increased our support to the ACT-Accelerator, which helps get Covid tests, treatments, supplies, and more to people in the most need. This should be celebrated, but the Government must address the combined crisis of COVID, Ukraine, and the economic aftershocks rippling through African and other developing countries. We need to increase investments to tackle all these crises at the same time, rather than just focusing on COVID-19 or Ukraine. Despite this important investment, this budget doesn’t go far enough to address the other converging crises endangering the Sustainable Development Goals.”

Suzanne Granville, Executive Director (North America)
