Support from Canadians

We are grateful for the many ways Canadians continued to show their care and support for their global neighbours as the pandemic extended into a second year. In 2021-22, individual Canadians, community groups, growing projects, businesses and churches helped raise over $18 million, helping us touch the lives of 939,447 people.
