Program Description

The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) is a program designed to support small-scale, high-impact projects in developing countries, which align with Canada's Foreign Policy objectives and thematic priority areas for engagement. The program is directed at projects conceived and designed predominantly by local partners. In Guatemala and Belize, the projects are selected and approved by the Canadian Embassy and High Commission, following the guidance provided by Global Affairs Canada. The CFLI also contributes to strengthening Canada's bilateral relations with Guatemala and Belize by contributing to civil society initiatives that support local priorities.

Organizations eligible to apply for CFLI funding

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.
