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:

  • Inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
  • 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.
  • Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
  • Human dignity, covering health, education and nutrition.

Within these thematic areas, the High Commission of Canada in South Africa will prioritize projects with a specific focus on one or more of the following:

  • Lowering the incidence of gender-based violence.
  • Encouraging civic participation by members of marginalized or under-represented groups.
  • Supporting the realization of equal rights for persons with diverse cultural, gender, and sexual identities.
  • Enabling greater participation in digital and low-carbon economies.
