The CFLI is a program designed to support small-scale but high-impact projects in developing countries, which align with Global Affairs Canada’s thematic priority areas. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed predominantly by local partners. Projects are selected and approved by the High Commission of Canada in New Zealand. 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 one 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
- 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
The average CFLI contribution is $5,000 to $30,000 Canadian Dollars (CAD$50,000 is the standard maximum allocation amount for a project eligible under CFLI).
