High Commission of Canada in Pakistan: Canada Fund for Local Initiatives 2017-2018

Deadline: 12 June 2017

High Commission of Canada in Pakistan is seeking proposals for its Canada Fund for Local Initiatives 2017-2018 to fund small-scale bilateral projects in Official Development Assistance (ODA) eligible countries, which align with Global Affairs Canada’s thematic priority areas for engagement. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed by local entities.

Projects are selected and approved by the relevant Canadian Embassy or High Commission.

The CFLI also serves to support positive bilateral relations between Canada, recipient countries and their respective civil societies by deepening contacts and supporting local endeavours.

Thematic Priorities

  • Empowering women and girls and promoting gender equality;
  • Championing human rights, inclusive and accountable governance, democracy, peaceful pluralism, and respect for diversity;
  • Promoting action on the environment, including water and climate change;
  • Promoting peace and security.

Funding Information

The maximum funding amount is Canadian $50,000. Smaller requests will be considered.

Eligibility Criteria

  • local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organizations,
  • local academic institutions working on local projects,
  • international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional institutions, organizations and agencies working on local development activities,
  • municipal, regional or national government institutions or agencies of the recipient country working on local projects, and
  • Canadian non-governmental and not-for-profit organizations that are working on local development activities.

The majority of CFLI funding is to be directed toward local civil society organizations (including 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 a contribution, provided that they are working with local partners and on local projects that are consistent with the objectives of the CFLI. Similarly, municipal, regional or national government institutions may receive CFLI funding, provided that their projects are essentially local in nature. The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects, which deliver measurable results.
