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.
All projects must align with at least one of the following CFLI thematic priorities:
a) Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
b) Inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
c) Human dignity, covering health, education and nutrition, including the response of local non-governmental and not-for-profit organizations to coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.
d) 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.
e) Environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
Eligible recipients include:
1. Local, national or community-based organization (non-governmental and not-for-profit);
