High Commission of Canada announces Canada Fund for Local Initiatives – Malaysia

Deadline: 13 May 2019

The High Commission of Canada in Malaysia has launched its annual call for proposals for the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).

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.

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.
  • environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.

Funding Information

The average CFLI contribution is $10,000-$30,000 Canadian Dollars (CAD$50,000 is the maximum allocation amount for a project eligible under CFLI).

Eligibility Criteria

  • 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 may 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 and national government institutions may receive funding, provided that their projects are essentially local in nature. The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects that deliver measurable results.

Two-year Programming

Projects spanning two fiscal years (April 2019 to March 2021) may be permitted depending on the project objectives and the complexity of activities.

To obtain an application form or for questions about the application process, please contact the CFLI Coordinator by email at the address given on the website.
