  • Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
  • Inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
  • Human dignity, covering health, education and nutrition.
  • Growth that works for everyone, including women’s economic rights, decent jobs and entrepreneurship, investing in the poorest and most vulnerable, and safeguarding economic gains.
  • Environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.

Funding Information

  • The majority of the funded projects will receive between CAD $10,000 to $25,000.
  • The majority of projects must be completed between the date of signature of the Contribution Agreement and 28 February 2019. Projects spanning two fiscal years (April 2018- March 2020) may be permitted depending on the project objectives and complexity of activities.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The majority of CFLI funding is to be directed toward local civil society and non-governmental organizations and other institutions working at the local level.
  • Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations can be eligible for funding, provided they are working with local partners and on local projects that are consistent with the objectives of the CFLI.
