Canada will allocate $1.3 billion Canadian dollars (over $947,000 USD) to Ukraine for military assistance, according to an economic report published on the Canadian government's website on November 21.

The funds will be provided to Ukraine over a three-year period. In the period from 2023 to 2024, Ukraine will receive $816,000 Canadian dollars from Canada.

Additionally, in the years 2024-2025, the Ukrainian army will receive assistance amounting to $318,000 Canadian dollars, and from 2025 to 2026, it will receive $197,000 Canadian dollars.

From 2026 onwards, military assistance to Ukraine is marked as zero in the report.

Canada's assistance

Despite being geographically distant from Ukraine, the North American country, along with the United States, has supported Ukrainians in the ongoing war initiated by Russia.

Canada has provided military, financial, humanitarian, and political assistance, endorsing sanctions against Russia. In May 2022, after the liberation of northern Ukraine, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Kyiv.

In September 2023, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited Canada for the first time since the beginning of the war.
