Canadian aid to Ethiopia under scrutiny

Millions of dollars in Canadian aid to Ethiopia could be under the microscope after reports that tens of thousands of indigenous people are being forcibly relocated to make room for large, foreign-run farming operations. The African nation is the third-largest recipient of Canadian foreign assistance, receiving nearly $170 million per year.
While much of that money is dedicated to maternal and child health, Canada has also contributed tens of millions of dollars towards improving Ethiopia’s agricultural sector, working specifically toward improving the livelihoods of thousands of poor villages and farmers in the country.
