Canada to Match Haiyan Donations
For every eligible dollar donated by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities in response to the impact of Typhoon Haiyan on the Philippines and other affected countries, the government will set aside one dollar for the Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund. The government will use the Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund to provide assistance through international and Canadian humanitarian organizations, employing established channels and procedures.
To be counted for the purposes of the Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund, donations from individual Canadians may not exceed $100,000 per individual and must be:
- monetary in nature.
- made to a registered Canadian charity that is receiving donations in response to the impact of Typhoon Haiyan.
- specifically earmarked for response to Typhoon Haiyan.
- be made between November 9 and December 9, 2013.
