1) Objective

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:

  • Environment and climate action, potential areas include: climate change adaptation and mitigation, coastal biodiversity, watershed area preservation, and supporting sustainable practices of indigenous peoples.
  • Peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention and building peace in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), dispute resolution in the West Philippine Sea, and implementation of the Women, Peace, and Security and Youth Peace and Security agendas.
  • Inclusive governance, including LGBTQ2 rights, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. This may also include freedom of information or combatting disinformation, in alignment with Canada’s chairing of the Freedom Online Coalition in 2022.
  • Human dignity and gender equality, with a focus on the empowerment of women and girls, in particular supporting women’s political participation and combatting gender-based violence.
