The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (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 priorities include one on environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
The average contribution is expected to be C$20 thousand per project. Larger projects may be considered on an exceptional basis.
Eligibility extends to local community organizations, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions working on local projects.
All projects must align with at least one of the 6 (six) CFLI thematic priorities.
The CFLI project application process now requires a gender-based analysis (GBA).
