The Inter-American Program of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) contributes to the achievement of greater equity in the Americas by helping to fulfil commitments made at the Summit of the Americas in Québec City in April 2001 and in Argentina in November 2005.

Among other things, this Program supports initiatives to achieve better governance, improve health, promote gender equality, and strengthen the institutions of key partners, such as the Organization of American States (OAS) and its affiliated organizations, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), and members of the hemisphere's civil society.

Unlike traditional bilateral programs, which are characterized by ties between Canada and other countries, the Inter-American Program supports activities on a hemispheric scale that span several countries, and often several sub-regions of South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.
