International aid and cooperation

  • Senegal is the 9th largest beneficiary under the Programme québécois de développement international (PQDI) et le 2e pays bénéficiaire du programme de stages de solidarité Québec sans frontières (QSF), ce qui le classe 5e en matière de financement combiné reçu de ces deux programmes.
  • Since 1997, 25 projects have received $1.71 million in QIDP or QSF funding.
  • The reciprocity component of the QSF program (French only) enabled 638 Québec interns to go to Senegal and 52 young Senegalese who are active in partner organizations in the South to do 2 to 3-month internships in Québec related to their professional activities, for a total contribution of $4.5 million.
  • Two projects in Senegal were selected during the 2016-2017 QIDP call for projects: three Senegalese took part in reciprocity internships in Québec while 31 Québec interns participated in QIDP projects in Senegal in 2016-2017 (a $254,579 investment by MRIF).
