Global Affairs Canada

• Due to COVID-19, many partners are experiencing financial challenges.
• The current holdback approach (5% across contribution agreements) may be contributing to these
challenges for some organizations, particularly those with multiple large projects.

Global Affairs Canada’s Response
Global Affairs Canada is taking a temporary, two-pronged, approach in response to these challenges due to the impact of COVID-19. If warranted, it will be possible for Programs to release or reduce the holdbacks currently applied in contribution agreements for projects ending this fiscal year (2020-2021), and to reduce holdback for international development assistance projects ending next fiscal year (2021-2022). Decisions will be taken on a project-by-project basis, not on an organizational or portfolio basis. This proactive and flexible response is expected to significantly ease cash flow management for partners.

We advise Canadians to avoid non-essential travel outside of Canada and to avoid all cruise ship travel until further notice.

We encourage Canadians outside of the country to register in the Registry of Canadians Abroad to receive important updates (https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/registration) and that they check the entry and exit requirements of the countries through which they may be transiting.

We stand ready to provide consular services to Canadians to the extent possible, while respecting the decisions of local health authorities as they manage this public health emergency. Some limitations may be in effect in some areas of the world. Please note that issues concerning other countries’ visa and immigration rules are beyond the Government of Canada’s control and therefore need to be raised with the relevant country’s authorities.

If you are in need of consular assistance from anywhere in the world can call the 24/7 Emergency Watch and Response Centre in Ottawa at +1 613-996-8885 (collect calls are accepted where available) or email sos@international.gc.ca. Due to the high volume of requests, we are working as fast as possible to respond to Canadians.

For any urgent need for assistance, on account of a medical emergency or otherwise, you may also contact the nearest Canadian government office abroad.

For Canadians who decide to stay abroad, we recommend they:

  • monitor local media and follow instructions from local authorities;
  • read the Travel Advice and Advisories for up-to-date information on the current situation in the country;
  • check with health insurance providers to know more about their policies related to COVID-19, including whether they are covered for medical treatment if they become infected with COVID-19 or for extended stays outside of Canada;
  • contact their province of residence regarding any health insurance issues;
  • ensure they have sufficient supplies for an extended stay (food, shelter, medications, etc.).

Please consult the COVID-19 Emergency Loan Program for Canadians Abroad webpage for more information about how the government is providing financial assistance to Canadian travellers during this difficult time.

To limit the spread of COVID-19, some countries have put measures in place that restrict travel, including closing land borders and shutting down airspace. In some cases, these measures have led to the complete cancellation of flights. For information on border closures, please consult the UNWFP webpage.

We strongly recommend that Canadian travelers follow the advice of local authorities regarding how best to protect their health and safety, such as social distancing or self-isolating, as appropriate.

We also recommend that Canadians regularly consult the Government of Canada’s official travel resources:

Travellers are encouraged to check with their insurance providers to know more about policy related to COVID-19, and to confirm their coverage is valid until their return home.

Access and admissibility into Canada is handled by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and it is their responsibility in collaboration with Public Health Agency Canada to screen travellers. For more information, please visit https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/menu-eng.html   

To support your work during this difficult time, Global Affairs Canada has produced a page on the GAC website showing the latest information, resources, and links related to development assistance aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes a link to new guidance on eligibility of COVID-19 potential costs for international development projects.

The new page, Guidance on eligibility of COVID-19 potential costs, can be easily found in the Development section of Global Affairs Canada’s website under Canadian Funding for International Development Projects.

We encourage you to consult this page and the eligible costs link often, as it will be updated regularly with new guidance and information.

The Temporary Wage Subsidy for Employers is a three-month measure that will allow eligible employers to reduce the amount of payroll deductions required to be remitted to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
