The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives

The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) was designed to support small projects proposed and implemented by local organizations in Chile. In providing funding for initiatives that offer direct social, economic or technical assistance to local populations, the CFLI contributed to the overall goal of reducing poverty.

The Embassy of Canada in Chile no longer receives the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives. As determined by the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Chile graduated from the list of countries that qualify for Official Development Assistance (ODA). Since Chile is no longer part of the list of beneficiaries, no more projects can be financed through the CFLI in Chile. 

From 2007 to 2017, Canada has financed in Chile, thanks to the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives, a total of 70 projects for a sum of 1.1 million Canadian dollars. The initiatives supported the advancement of human rights, the protection of the environment, the promotion of gender equality, and of inclusion and diversity.

The 2015-2016 Canada Fund for Local Initiatives supported 6 projects in Chile

The 2016-2017 Canada Fund for Local Initiatives supported 13 projects in Chile

The 2017-2018 Canadian Fund for Local Initiatives supported 11 projects in Chile
