September 2019 - This promise is rated as fulfilled in part. There is evidence to show that Canada is engaged nationally and internationally in counterterrorism cooperation, notably through Global Counter Terrorism Forum as well as training in counter terrorism through the military's role in the Middle East. However, this promise includes the criteria of vastly increasing the scope of training assistance missions, which would led one to expect to find evidence of higher levels of engagement and investment. The financial data is aggregated such that the amounts dedicated to counterterrorism training assistance are not identified. Based on information about actual missions, we cannot assert that the scope of training assistance was vastly increased.
April 29, 2019 - "Canada's international counter-terrorism efforts are also delivered through Global Affairs Canada's Counter-Terrorism Capacity Building Program (CTCBP) and allows Canada to support security and intelligence agencies in partner countries around the world with training and equipment. In 2018, among of the many projects to which Canada contributed, two particularly interesting projects should be highlighted: (1) Enhancing the Jordanian capacity to respond to security incidents; and (2) supporting a counter-terrorism capacity-building project for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region." - 2018 Public Report on the Terrorism Threat to Canada - National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces
