Through the Technical Assistance Partnership (TAP), leaders from a diversity of sectors, backgrounds, gender, cultural identities and regions across Canada will share their expertise with partner countries around the world.
Canada is home to internationally recognized and sought-after experts across multiple sectors. To support poverty reduction in countries around the world, the TAP project responds to needs identified by countries eligible for official development assistance, ranging from gender equality and vocational training to governance and natural resource management.
Working with Canadian diplomatic missions abroad, national government entities identify ways in which Canadian experts can help strengthen their national policies and programs, increase institutional performance, public service accountability and capacity, and develop new and more inclusive and sustainable ways of doing the business of good governance. TAP’s project team of development professionals recruits, deploys and supports these experts with logistics, training, and work planning.
