1) Objective

The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) is a program designed to fund small-scale but high-impact projects in Official Development Assistance (ODA) eligible countries, which align with Global Affairs Canada’s thematic priority areas for engagement. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed by local entities. Projects are selected and approved by the relevant Canadian Embassy or High Commission. The CFLI also serves to support positive bilateral relations between Canada, recipient countries and their respective civil societies by deepening contacts and supporting local endeavors. The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) program for the eastern Caribbean is administered directly through the High Commission of Canada for Barbados and the eastern Caribbean, based in Bridgetown, Barbados. The CFLI program is funded and administered separately from Canada’s Caribbean Regional Development Program, which covers the CARICOM countries. All projects must align with at least one of the CFLI thematic priorities: (1) gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls: This specifically refers to sexual and gender-based violence, child and early forced marriage, gender mutilation and cutting; strengthening women’s organizations; and strengthening the capacity and systems of state and non-state actors to advance gender equality; and (2) environment and climate action focusing on adaption and mitigation, as well as on water management.

2) Eligibility

Eligible applicants are: (1) local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organisations; (2) local academic institutions working on local projects; (3) international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional institutions, organisations and agencies working on local development activities; (4) municipal, regional or national government institutions or agencies of the recipient country working on local projects; and (5) Canadian non-governmental and not-for-profit organisations that are working on local development activities.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat (British overseas Territories), St. Lucia, and St.Vincent & The Grenadines.
