a) 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
b) is directed at projects conceived and designed predominantly by local partners
c) also serves to support positive bilateral relations between Canada and recipient countries and their civil societies, by deepening contacts and supporting local endeavors.

The Government of Canada is strongly committed to supporting gender equality and empowerment of women and girls; thus, these considerations should be taken into account under each priority:
1. Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls with a specific focus on refugees;
2. Inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights and the rule of law, with a specific focus on the LGBTI community, and freedom of the press.

The average CFLI contribution is $15,000 – $20,000 Canadian Dollars.
