Deadline: 28 May 2017

The High Commission of Canada in Malaysia is seeking proposals for its Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) 2017-2018 to fund small-scale bilateral projects in Official Development Assistance (ODA) eligible countries (including Malaysia), which align with Global Affairs Canada’s thematic priority areas for engagement. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed by local organisations.

Projects will be selected and approved by the High Commission of Canada in Malaysia. The CFLI also serves to support positive bilateral relations between Canada, recipient countries and their respective civil societies by deepening contacts and supporting local endeavours.

Thematic Priorities

  • Empowering women and girls and promoting gender equality;
  • Promoting human development, specifically in the areas of health, nutrition, and education;
  • Championing human rights, inclusive and accountable governance, democracy, peaceful pluralism, and respect for diversity;
  • Supporting inclusive and green economic growth;
  • Promoting action on the environment, including water and climate change; and,
  • Promoting peace and security.

Funding Information

  • The average contribution is in the range of CAD $15,000-$30,000 for each individual project.
  • Larger projects may be considered on an exceptional basis, with appropriate justification for use of funds (to a maximum of CAD $50,000).

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; 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 provided that 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 CFLI funding, provided that their projects are essentially local in nature.
  • The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects, which deliver measurable results.
