Jul 12, 2023

At the NATO Summit in Vilnius, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced new funding and projects worth 541 million Canadian dollars ($410 million) to support Ukraine and strengthen transatlantic security.

This was reported by the press service of the Prime Minister of Canada.

"The Prime Minister announced the allocation of 541 million Canadian dollars in new funding and projects to support Ukraine and strengthen transatlantic security. The new funding for Ukraine builds on more than $8 billion in comprehensive assistance that Canada has provided since the beginning of 2022," the statement said.


According to Trudeau, Canada intends to respond to Ukraine's direct request by providing additional drones with stones.

Canada will also provide training and capacity building for the Ukrainian military as part of Operation UNIFIER in Canada. This summer, the Royal Military College of Saint-Jean will host officer cadets from Ukraine for an intensive three-week training program developed in partnership with NATO under the Defense Education Enhancement Program (DEEP).

Trudeau also announced an additional 48.8 million Canadian dollars ($37 million) to the Comprehensive Assistance Package for Ukraine.

This contribution will support NATO's non-lethal, practical assistance to Ukraine through the transfer of materiel, including fuel, bridge equipment, rations, and first aid supplies.
