The evaluation found that Canada was an important player and significant donor in Ukraine over the evaluation period, providing consistent and long-term international assistance that had significant impact in all areas examined. It leveraged available financial resources and Canadian political support to engage the post-2014 reform and modernization process in Ukraine. The department’s development programming addressed the Government of Ukraine’s priorities, while humanitarian and peace and stabilization programs provided quick, flexible and responsive assistance to address emerging needs.

International assistance programming achieved significant outcomes in select programming areas, such as support to Ukraine’s police reform, advancing gender equality and the establishment of the juvenile justice system. Notable results in the dairy and horticultural sectors also helped support economic stabilization in the country.
