The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives

The call for proposals for the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives for 2017-2018 is now closed.

For over three decades, Canada has funded modest development assistance projects worldwide through the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).

The CFLI provides financial assistance to cover part or all the costs of projects that are comparatively modest in scope, scale and expense, and are generally designed and developed by authorities or organizations of local base, proposed and implemented by them. This enables Canada to respond to local needs by working at the community level.

The Canada Fund is also a major tool of the Canadian government to strengthen relations between Canada, Palestinian civil society and the local communities, helping to build networks of contacts in around the world.
