Canada Fund for Local Initiatives


The Canada Fund is a development programme administered by Canadian missions which aims to assist non-governmental organizations to carry out small innovative development projects. The main objective of the Canada Fund is to provide financial assistance to small projects which lend themselves to the active participation of local communities and which promise to have an impact in the short and long term.

Priority is normally given to projects which aim at training or creating job, particularly for women, supporting basic needs and human rights of the most disadvantaged groups (including Palestinian refugees, disabled, women, children, people in rural areas), supporting projects which do not discriminate between confessions and which promote reconciliation.
