I heard your voices

r1 You took action and Canada’s stepping up — but we need to act together at home


Let’s Unite Against COVID-19 Globally, and Here in Canada


Karina Gould — Minister of International Development

Hi Paov,

As Canada's Minister for International Development, I wanted to take a moment to thank Canadian Global Citizens like you for taking action that will help us realize a world free from COVID-19 and its effects.

With your support, our government was empowered to commit $220 million to help ensure that access to COVID-19 vaccines is not dependent on where someone lives, and $400 million to help developing countries respond to the extraordinary pressures being placed on them by the pandemic. This support builds on the work Canada is already doing, including the $300 million Prime Minister Trudeau announced at Global Goal: Unite For Our Future back in June. Together we are helping the world get through this.

So thank you. Thank you for your tweets, phone calls, and petition signatures, and for your commitment to find global solutions in the fight against COVID-19.

But the work isn’t over, and I want to assure you that I will continue to raise my voice for the world’s most vulnerable, and for Canada to be at the center of the global response, because as you know, no one is safe unless everyone is safe.

That's why we're supporting developing countries, and it’s why we need Canadians here at home to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Four simple ways you can help protect yourself and others is by wearing a mask, physically distancing, following public health guidance, and by encouraging your family and friends to do the same.

Tweet Now: Spread The Word and Help Stop COVID-19

As Prime Minister Trudeau said, we’re already facing a second wave of COVID-19 in Canada, and the fall could be much worse than the spring. But we have the power collectively to get this second wave under control, to protect one another, and build back better towards a brighter future for all Canadians.

We are all in this together. Please take action with me and Global Citizen by spreading the word on social media, and united we will beat COVID-19.
