It is now the fourth year of the five-year partnership between Global Affairs Canada and the Rotary Foundation (Canada). The Government of Canada is providing Canadian Rotary Clubs and Districts with $1.2 million dollars per year to be added to the Global Grants program of the Rotary Foundation.
 
Each year since the program's inception, the number of grants that have been applied for and approved, has increased significantly. These additional funds can greatly enhance any project that the various clubs and districts have planned. The process has been simplified with the use of a single form application and generally takes only 24-48 hours to receive an approval. In the case where a project involves environmental issues, the process may take longer as our environmental consultants may have some questions.
 
Recently a new Webninar has been created to assist Rotarians when applying for a GOC matching grant. This can be found under the "GOC Program" tab as well as on the TRFC Home Page on the left.
 
If you require further information regarding the GOC Matching Grants, please send inquiries to grantstrfc@gmail.com.

May 8, 2018 - "Polio Global Eradication Initiative" News Article
 
 "Last month, Canada signed a generous pledge of Can$ 100 million to help eradicate polio in Afghanistan as well as in the two other endemic countries, Nigeria and Pakistan, and to continue to protect many polio-free countries. The pledge was announced by the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, at the 2017 Rotary International Convention in Atlanta.
 
Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau used the signing as an opportunity to underline Canada’s ongoing commitment. “Canada has been a supporter in the fight against polio from the very beginning and we are committed to seeing it through to the end,” she said. “Keeping the momentum is key, particularly in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria, where polio still exists. Canada remains committed to ensuring every child is immunized, particularly girls, who continue to face barriers.
 

With this funding and ongoing support, Canada is striving to protect every girl and boy child. In doing so, Canada is making history.

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative partners extend their profound gratitude to the Government and to the citizens of Canada for their tremendous support and engagement to end polio globally."

May 16, 2016 - Copenhagen, Denmark - Global Affairs Canada

The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, today announced a contribution of $19.9 million toward the eradication of polio in Nigeria.

Implemented by the World Health Organization, the Sustaining Polio Eradication Through Strengthened Routine Immunization project will help immunize approximately 6.6 million girls and 6.9 million boys against polio in 11 high-risk Nigerian states. It will also train approximately 154,000 vaccinators and help protect up to 250,000 children from vaccine-preventable diseases.

In September 2015 the World Health Organization made the historic announcement that polio is no longer endemic in Nigeria and that there have been no cases reported since July 2014. Immunization activities are essential to ensure against the re-emergence of the virus.

Minister Bibeau made the announcement on the margins of the Women Deliver conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. The conference presents a unique opportunity to discuss and engage in dialogue on matters related to women and girls, with a specific focus on health.

Dear Fellow Rotarians,
As you may be aware, the Canadian Rotary Collaboration for International Development (CRCID) is completing its final projects after almost 30 years of serving Canadian Rotary clubs and districts. CRCID has been very successful but in consultation with the Government of Canada it was felt that a new model reflecting the current status of international humanitarian aid was needed. I wish to congratulate CRCID on its excellent service to ensuring Canadian Rotarians had the support they needed.
 
You may have seen the News Release by Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) on the 1 August that outlined two new plans – one for the matching of funds donated by Canadian Rotarians to the Polio Eradication Initiative. The other was a new funding model from the Canadian Government to Rotarian international projects.
 
The Rotary Foundation (Canada) has entered into a new agreement with  DFATD. The senior staff at DFATD have reviewed the Global Grant model of TRF and are impressed by the needs assessments, evaluations, reporting mechanisms, stewardship and sustainability of our structure. The new agreement will use the Global Grant (GG) structure as its basis and allow clubs and districts access to Canadian Government funds for their projects. These funds will qualify for a World Fund match from TRF.
 
The agreement is for 5 years and the Canadian Government is contributing CDN $1.2 million/year to Canadian Rotary projects.

Government of Canada Partners with Rotary Foundation Canada to Eradicate Polio Worldwide and Reduce Poverty in Developing Countries

August 1, 2015 – Ottawa, Ontario – Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada
The Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, announced the renewal of the partnership between Government of Canada and Rotary Foundation Canada by providing a total of up to $18 million to help save the lives of vulnerable children and reduce poverty in the world’s poorest countries.
During the next four years, the Government of Canada will contribute two dollars for every dollar raised by Rotary Foundation Canada in support of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s Endgame Strategy, to a maximum contribution of $12 million. The funds will be provided to UNICEF to support the goal of eradicating polio worldwide by 2018.
The renewal of the partnership reinforces Canada’s ongoing leadership on polio. It builds on the Pennies & More for Polio initiative, through which Rotary Foundation Canada raised $2.2 million between 2012 and 2013, which was matched by the Government of Canada.
The Government of Canada will also contribute up to $6 million to support Rotary Foundation Canada’s efforts to help advance maternal, newborn and child health, secure the future of children and youth, and increase sustainable economic growth in under-served communities in developing countries.
Today, the world stands on the verge of being able to end the preventable deaths of women and children within a generation. Canada remains steadfast in its commitment to work with Canadian and international partners to achieve this goal.

Quick Facts

  • Canada’s support for these initiatives reflects Canada’s commitment to three of its top international development priorities: securing the future of children and youth, stimulating sustainable economic growth and improving maternal, newborn and child health—Canada’s top international development priority.
  • Polio is one of the world’s most enduring infectious diseases and mainly affects children under the age of five. Addressing polio through immunization is one of the most cost-effective health interventions to end preventable child mortality.
  • Since 1988, the global incidence of polio has decreased by over 99 percent, largely through the efforts of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), to which Canada was a founding donor.
  • Since 1988, at least 2.5 billion children around the world have been immunized. Today, more than 10 million people who would otherwise have been paralyzed by the polio virus are walking thanks to global polio eradication efforts.
  • In October 2014, Prime Minister Stephen Harper was honoured to receive the Rotary Foundation Polio Eradication Champion Award for his longstanding support for, and continued leadership in, efforts to eliminate polio around the world.
  • Canada is a global leader in immunization to improve the health and survival of women and children.

Dear Club Presidents,

I am writing to inform you of a significant improvement that The Rotary Foundation (Canada) is making

to our tax receipt process. Beginning with contributions to the Rotary Foundation (Canada) received

from January 1, 2015, we will wherever possible issue tax receipts electronically. This new process will

apply whether a donation is made on-line or mailed to us. This will speed up the receipt process and

substantially reduce operational costs, especially in light of escalating postal rates.

ImageBy Tanya F. Wolff, past governor of District 6330 in Ontario, Canada and a board member of the Rotary Foundation (Canada)

I am not a runner. I can jog. I can walk and I can hike. I do these things for those in the world who cannot.

The PolioPlus program was already in effect when I joined Rotary in 1992. Seeing as I have travelitis (the need to travel constantly), the idea of traveling to another part of the world was a Rotary opportunity that I could not pass up.

As a child, I didn’t know anyone affected by polio. It just didn’t exist in my world. But my world has become bigger since I joined Rotary. In the remotest parts of India, Mali, Niger, Egypt, Benin and Nepal, I met thousands who have been touched by this disease.

In 2010, I decided to run my first marathon for PolioPlus, and I couldn’t think of a better place than in Chicago, the birthplace of Rotary. The following year, I joined the Rotary Club of New York’s marathon team for the NYC marathon. Earlier this year I tackled Disney’s marathon-and-a-half, called the “Goofy.” Which it was!

I proudly crossed the finish line all three times wearing the End Polio Now logo.

Marathons are like having children. The first time, you say “never again.” But a few weeks or months later you might say “that wasn’t so bad, maybe one more.” I’ve had three children and “run” three marathons.

I don’t plan to have more children myself, but I will keep chasing that finish line until we have fulfilled our promise to the children of the world.

Tanya will be running in the Miami Marathon on 2 February, 2014. You can support Tanya’s run for polio, or if you are a Rotary member contribute directly to End Polio Now and let Tanya know at tanya@rotary6330.org. Your contributions will be matched double by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, increasing the impact of your giving to eradicate this disease.

ImageOur Pennies and More for Polio challenge match has been incredibly successful. We have gone way over the top, raising and contributing $2.27 million!

Late last summer Rotarians in Canada accepted a challenge from the Government of Canada to raise One Million Dollars for Polio+ and CIDA would match it penny for penny, dollar for dollar. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also came on board and agreed to match Rotarians’ efforts to the same $ One Million.

The $ One Million had been agreed to as a stretch target for Rotarians and was within CIDA’s budget parameter’s. The Government of Canada gave us until March 1, 2013 to raise the funds, but given some unanticipated delays in getting to launch date, agreed that we could include contributions to Polio+ from June 1, 2012.

The name of the campaign came about from discussions surrounding the planned demise of the penny, but knowing that we would need to gather up more than pennies to reach the $ One Million mark. Well, that is what Rotarians and the Rotary family of Rotary Club’s Rotaractors and Interactors from coast to coast to coast did. Districts dug into their DDF, Clubs dug into their treasuries and held a variety of community events to raise awareness and funds to End Polio Now.

They went to work right away. By around the end of the calendar year and beginning of this year, we reached the $ One Million target. However, as every Rotarian knows every penny counts in our efforts to banish polio from the planet and by mid-February we had reached $1.5 million.

The Honorable Julian Fantino, Minister of International Cooperation was so impressed with our efforts that he announced at the Vancouver Peace Conference on Feb 23rd, that both the Government of Canada and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation would match whatever amount we had raised by the March 1st deadline. IPPC Chair, Bob Scott then challenged Canadian Rotarians to see if we could double the original target and get to $2 million. The response in the final week was incredible!

On March 1st, the Rotary Club of Toronto, as part of its centennial program presented a cheque for $100,000, to RI President Sakuji Tanaka, putting the contributions over the $2 million mark. When everything in process was tallied up, in total, more than $600,000 rolled in that last week. Absolutely fantastic!

Once again Canadian Rotarians have demonstrated our commitment to End Polio. We did that with the generous support of friends, families, our communities and other Rotarians like our friends in Zone 32. With the matching, our $2.27 Million results in a total of $6.8 million being contributed to the global initiative to rid the world of polio.  Our successful Pennies and More for Polio challenge was the result of much hard work, dedication and determination of so many Rotarians, with the wonderful support of our staff and those at CIDA and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

 A heartfelt thanks to everyone! We are Making a Difference and we will honour our commitment to the children of the world and end the scourge of polio. There is more yet to do, but clearly Rotarians are up to the challenge!
