The Embassy of Canada in Vietnam is pleased to launch its annual call for proposal 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. 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:
– Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, including a focus on working to improve the economic livelihoods of females’ participants from ethnic minority groups in Vietnam.
– Inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights, and rule of law, with a specific focus on media freedom, freedom of expression, LGBTQ2 groups, and religion.
– Environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on plastics waste.
