Over 10% of reported Canadian donations go to Israel, a country with GDP per capita equivalent to Canada

A recent access (ATIP) request from the Revenue Canada revealed that Israel received the highest amount of charitable donations from Canadian charities of any country. 

On average over the last five years, over 11 percent of the funds donated to other countries by Canadian charities went to Israel, a county that has a GP equivalent or higher than Canada.
However, in 2022, the amount of donations reported being provided by Canadian charities to Israel dropped significantly—from over $230 M in 2021 to $69M in 2022.

The number of charities reporting sending money to Israel dropped from over 200 to 118 charities.
