The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives - China

Read Chinese version

The deadline for submitting a proposal has now passed. We thank you for your interest.

Program description

The Embassy of Canada in China 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. 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 one of the following CFLI thematic priorities:

Organizations eligible to apply for CFLI funding

Eligible recipients include:

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.

Gender-based analysis (GBA)

In 2017, Canada adopted its Feminist International Assistance Policy to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls as the most effective way to reduce poverty and build a more inclusive, peaceful and prosperous world. In alignment with this policy, the CFLI project application process now requires a gender-based analysis (GBA). The purpose of this change is to enhance the gender equality outcomes of the CFLI program.

A GBA will require applicants to:

Note that consultations can include, but are not limited to, speaking to women and girls from the local community, women and other individuals who work for civil society organizations that have worked in the local community and female and male decision and change makers who have knowledge of the local community.

Inadequate completion of a GBA may affect the consideration of your proposal. 

Two-year programming

Projects spanning two fiscal years (April 2019 to March 2021) may be permitted depending on the project objectives and the complexity of activities. 

Eligible costs

The following project costs are eligible for CFLI funding:

加拿大资助地方活动基金-中国

项目简介

加拿大驻华大使馆很高兴推出加拿大资助地方活动基金(CFLI)年度简要项目书征集。

加拿大资助地方活动基金项目(简称为CFLI或加拿大基金),提供小额赠款,以支持发展中国家的小型但影响重大的项目。这些项目符合加拿大外交部关注的优先主题。该基金主要针对当地合作伙伴构想和设计的项目,被资助项目由加拿大驻华大使馆选择以及审批。与此同时,通过深化接触和支持当地项目,加拿大资助地方活动基金帮助支持加拿大与受援国及其民间社会之间的积极双边关系。

优先领域

所有项目必须符合至少下述一项CFLI指定的优先领域:

有资格申请CFLI基金的组织

符合条件的接受资助机构包括:

CFLI的大部分资金将用于当地民间社会组织(包括非政府组织)和其他在当地工作的机构。其他实体,如国际、政府间、多边和区域组织也有资格获得资助,前提是它们与当地合作伙伴合作,同时合作的项目符合CFLI的目标。同样,市政、区域或国家政府机构也可以获得资金,前提是其项目本质上是归属于当地的。 CFLI一直在寻求资助可以产生可衡量结果的创新型项目。

基于性别的分析(GBA)

2017年,加拿大通过了一项《女权主义国际援助政策》,推动性别平等和赋予妇女和女童权力,这是减少贫困并建设一个更具包容性、和平与繁荣世界的最有效途径。根据这项政策,基于性别的分析将成为CFLI项目申请流程的必要组成部分。这一变化的目的是提升CFLI项目性别平等的成果。

基于性别的分析将要求申请人:

咨询内容包括但不限于:与当地社区的女性和女童交谈;与服务于当地社区的民间社会组织里工作的女性和其他个人交谈;对那些了解当地社区的女性和男性决策者和变革者交谈。
如果未完成性别分析,则可能会影响对您项目书的考虑。
