The CFLI program is designed to support small-scale, high-impact projects in developing countries, which align with Global Affairs Canada’s thematic priority areas for engagement, and which support positive bilateral relations between Canada and Pakistan and its civil society by deepening contacts and supporting local endeavours.
This call is for small-scale high impact project proposals designed to advance the following thematic priorities:
- human rights with a focus on the rights of minorities and freedom of media.
- peace and security, with a focus on reducing extremism and its associated impact on regional security.
- environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, or on water management.
Canada adopted its Feminist International Assistance Policy to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls as the most effective way to reduce poverty and build a more inclusive, peaceful and prosperous world. In alignment with this policy, the CFLI project application process now requires a gender-based analysis (GBA). The purpose of this change is to enhance the gender equality outcomes of the CFLI program.
A GBA will require applicants to:
- consider how women, girls, men, and boys are affected differently by the problem their project is aiming to address, ensuring, at the same time, that the project does not cause harm
- consult women and/or girls in the development of their project proposal
- ensure that the views of those women and/or girls inform the project’s design
Note that consultations can include, but are not limited to, speaking to women and girls from the local community, women and other individuals who work for civil society organizations that have worked in the local community and female and male decision and change makers who have knowledge of the local community.
Inadequate completion of a GBA may affect the consideration of your proposal.
CFLI project funding is approximately $20,000 CAD per project. Consult the currency converter for local currency equivalents. Smaller or larger projects may also be considered, depending on the proposed initiative and assessed capacity of the implementing partner.
The CFLI looks to fund innovative projects that deliver measurable results.
Eligible recipients include:
- Local, national or community-based organization (non-governmental and not-for-profit)
- Local municipal, regional or national government institution or agency of the recipient country
