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 focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
  • gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
  • inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
  • peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention and building peace.
  • human dignity, covering health, education and nutrition.
  • 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.

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, organizations 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 organizations that are working on local development activities.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.

4) Budget

New partners can apply for up to $50,000 Canadian Dollars (CAD). Applicants who have previously received CFLI funding can apply for up to $100,000 CAD. However, there must be a clear distinction between the activities and beneficiaries of your previous project and the new proposal. Concept notes that are a continuation of previous projects will not be considered.
