Canada has dedicated $288.3 million to this new phase of the strategy over 3 years.

This phase will consolidate our efforts and allow us to transition from immediate crisis response to helping advance durable solutions in Myanmar and addressing the medium- and longer-term needs of refugees and other crisis-affected populations, including in Bangladesh.
