Title: Burma Cyclone Relief Fund
Description/subject: In May 2008, Canada announced it would match the contributions of Canadians to humanitarian organizations responding to Cyclone Nargis that struck Burma on May 2, 2008. To this end, the Government of Canada created the Burma Cyclone Relief Fund. For every dollar generously donated by individual Canadians to eligible Canadian charitable organizations, Canada contributed a dollar to the Burma Cyclone Relief Fund. The Canadian International Development Agency provided effective and accountable financial support to established Canadian and international humanitarian organizations for relief efforts that are benefiting the people in Burma most affected by the cyclone.

Title: Canada's Policy on Burma
Date of publication: October 2008
Description/subject: Canada’s policy on Burma is a direct reflection of the severe problems that the military government has created for its people, and the security concerns that the policies of its leadership and the actions of its armed forces pose for the international community. Foremost among the concerns is the appalling mistreatment of the people of Burma, who are deprived of fundamental human rights and denied a voice in the way they are governed.

Title: Important information related to Canada's sanctions against Burma
Date of publication: 13 December 2007
Description/subject: On December 13, 2007 the Special Economic Measures (Burma) Regulations came into force. Canada's decision to impose robust and targeted sanctions against the Burmese regime, including a ban on all goods exported from Canada to Burma, and a prohibition on the provision of Canadian financial services to and from Burma, reflect Canada's condemnation of the Burmese regime's complete disregard for human rights and ongoing repression of the democratic movement. Canada's sanctions are targeted at the Burmese authorities and not the people of Burma
