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.

Thematic Priorities
  • All projects must align with at least 1 of the following CFLI thematic priorities:
    • Inclusive governance, including diversity and 2SLGBTQI+, 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.
    • Environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management.
Funding Information
  • The average CFLI contribution is $35,000 to $50,000 Canadian Dollars (CAD$100,000 is the maximum allocation amount for a project eligible under CFLI).
Eligibility Criteria
  • Eligible recipients include:
    • Local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organizations,
    • Local academic institutions working on local projects,
    • International non-governmental organizations working on local development activities,
    • Intergovernmental, multilateral and regional institutions, organizations and agencies working on local development activities,
    • Municipal, regional or national government institutions or agencies of the recipient country working on local projects, and

  • The majority of CFLI funding is to be directed toward local civil society organizations (including non-governmental organizations) and other institutions working at the local level. Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations may be eligible for funding, provided they are working with local partners and on local projects that are consistent with the objectives of the CFLI. Similarly, municipal, regional and national government institutions may receive funding, provided that their projects are essentially local in nature. The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects that deliver measurable results.
