Welcome to the Canadian International Development Agency's (CIDA) - Egypt Program Site.
Here you can: learn about projects, check the latest news or reference documents, connect with our Program Support Unit or join an interactive discussion.

The Goal of CIDA's bilateral program is to support Egypt in its efforts to reduce poverty of the country's marginalized groups, in particular women and children/youth. To achieve this Goal, Canadian assistance will be primarily directed to:
  • Basic Education to further human resource development and;
  • Small and Medium enterprise development to foster better employment opportunities.
These objectives reflect the strong interconnectedness amongst poverty, education and employment.

Gender equality, environmental sustainability, institutional capacity building and child protection will be integral, crosscutting components in the program.

CIDA's Partnership, Regional and Multilateral Programmes are also very active in Egypt, supporting activities through Canadian civil society and commercial interests. These are activities, which promote cooperation amongst Egypt and its neighbors and the development efforts of multilateral organizations such as the United Nations and the Francophonie.
