Federal government will match up to $100 million for Syria aid

OTTAWA — Canada will be supplying additional humanitarian assistance for victims of the conflict in Syria.

International Development Minister Christian Paradis on Saturday announced that the federal government will match “eligible” Canadian donations up to $100 million under the Syrian Emergency Relief Fund.

That’s in addition to $503.5 million in humanitarian assistance funding Canada has already allocated for humanitarian efforts in Syria and neighbouring countries since the beginning of Syria’s civil war.
