The CFLI is a program designed to support small-scale, high-impact projects in developing countries, which align with Global Affairs Canada’s thematic priority areas for engagement. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed predominantly by local partners. Projects are selected and approved by the relevant Canadian embassy or high commission.
The CFLI also serves to support positive bilateral relations between Canada and recipient countries and their civil societies, by deepening contacts and supporting local endeavours.
All projects must align with at least 1 of the following CFLI thematic priorities:
- gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
- inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
- peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention and building peace.
- 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.
Proposed project value should range between 15,000 and 30,000 Canadian dollars and should be directly equivalent to the proposed level of effort and the organizational capacity to deliver the proposed 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
- Local academic institution
