Embassy of Canada to Ethiopia: Canada Fund for Local Initiatives

Deadline: 10 August 2018

The Embassy of Canada to Ethiopia has announced a call for proposals for its Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) to support small-scale but high-impact projects in developing countries, which align with the one of the action areas that guide the Government of Canada’s international assistance.

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.

At this time, the Embassy of Canada is only considering project proposals for Ethiopia.

Thematic Priorities

  • 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;
    • Human dignity, covering health, education and nutrition;
    • 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;
    • Environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
  • Special priority will be given to projects combining the themes of “Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls” and “Peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention and building peace”.

Funding Information

The majority of the funded projects will receive between CAD $10,000 to $45,000.

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,
    • 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.
