High Commission of Canada in Jamaica: 2018-19 Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI)

Deadline: 27 July 2018

High Commission of Canada in Jamaica is seeking proposals for its 2018-19 Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).

The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) program for Jamaica is administered directly through the High Commission of Canada for Jamaica, based in Kingston, Jamaica. The CFLI program is funded and administered separately from Canada’s Caribbean Regional Development Program, which covers the CARICOM countries.

Thematic Priorities

All projects must align with at least one of the following thematic priorities:

  • Environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
  • Growth that works for everyone including boys and young men, women’s economic rights, decent jobs and entrepreneurship, investing in the poorest and most vulnerable, and safeguarding economic growth.
  • Peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention and building peace.

Grant Information

  • The average contribution per individual project is expected to be in the range of CAD $10,000-$45,000.
  • Project must be completed in a maximum duration of six months (with activities completed by February 28, 2019).

Eligibility Criteria

  • Within the context of eligible countries, eligible recipients include:
    • 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 funding, provided 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 funding, provided that their projects are essentially local in nature. The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects, which deliver measurable results.
