Canada's conservative federal goverment announced in it's budget that CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) will be rolled into a new department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development.

While this has been the two dominate narratives in the media both lack a critical analysis of both the historical and current context of Canadian aid and foreign policy. Author and researcher Nik Barry-Shaw supplies this critical analysis of Canadian aid and international development.
Nik Barry-Shaw is an independent researcher, member of the Canada Haiti Action Network and co-author of Paved with Good intentions:Canada's development NGOs from Idealism to Imperialism.
