The Embassy of Canada in Côte d’Ivoire is pleased to launch its annual call for proposals for the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).

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.

All projects must align with at least 1 of the following CFLI thematic priorities:

  • Peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention and building peace, including disinformation and the role that women can play as agents of reconciliation, living together, and peace.
  • Inclusive governance, including women, girls, youth, and marginalized groups, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.
  • Environment and climate action, focusing on adaptation for growth that works for everyone

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 Canada Fund for Local Initiatives is always looking to fund innovative projects that deliver measurable results.
