Description

The Embassy of Canada in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan 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 1 of the following CFLI thematic priorities, and address one of the listed sub-themes:
  • Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls:
    • Addressing sexual and gender-based violence, including child, early and forced marriage and female genital mutilation/cutting
    • Supporting strong and sustainable women’s rights organizations and movements.
    • Supporting evidence-based policy-making, legal frameworks and program delivery for gender equality
  • Championing human rights, inclusive and accountable governance, democracy and fundamental freedoms, peaceful pluralism and respect for diversity, including the following specific sub-themes:
    • Strengthen legal systems and promote reforms that eliminate all forms of discrimination against women, girls and other marginalized groups
    • Support citizen participation, including through innovative and technology-enabled means, to promote ownership and sustainability in social, political and economic processes
    • Strengthen civil society and increase democratic political participation, including that of women, youth and marginalized groups; create and maintain, in law and in practice, a safe and enabling environment for civil society and the media (including women’s organizations and women’s rights defenders)
    • Respect for all human rights and fundamental freedoms—including freedom of religion or belief, of expression, of peaceful assembly and of association—and a contribution to the elimination of discrimination, prejudice, racism, intolerance and persecution
Funding Information
The average CFLI contribution is $35,000 to $75,000 Canadian Dollars (CAD$100,000 is the maximum allocation amount for a project eligible under CFLI).

  • Local, national or community-based organization (non-governmental and not-for-profit)
