According to an Ukrinform correspondent, this was discussed during a phone call between First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Svyridenko and Minister of International Trade of Canada Mary Ng.
"Minister Ng strongly condemned the unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine and Russia's attacks on innocent civilians. She reaffirmed Canada's commitment to strengthening Ukraine's defense capabilities and economy, as well as its solidarity with the people through further humanitarian and financial assistance," the Canadian Ministry of Commerce said in a press release.
This year's state budget of Canada provides $1 billion for a loan to Ukraine through the IMF mechanism.

In addition, the conversation focused on "the impact of the Russian invasion on global food security and prices."
