The Government of Canada has provided CAD $310,000  (approximately Rs. 35 million) in support to humanitarian relief efforts in Sri Lanka in response to the May 2016 flooding and landslides.

This funding was disbursed through the Canadian Humanitarian Assistance Fund (CHAF) and the Emergency Disaster Assistance Fund (EDAF) of Global Affairs Canada and will support those most affected by the unprecedented rainfall and devastating floods in May 2016 which has resulted in tragic loss of life, injuries, missing, displaced and damages.  Canadian funding will support up to 62,000 people.
