2013 Canada fund for Serbia and for Montenegro

The Embassy of Canada in Serbia is issuing a call for submissions for the Canada Fund.

The Canada Fund finances small projects which enhance the democratic, economic, cultural, and social life of the people of Serbia and of Montenegro.

This year, the Canada Fund will give preference to projects promoting:

  • Human rights, with a focus on improving the position of vulnerable groups
  • Sustained democratic development at all levels of society
  • Good governance in local institutions
  • Citizen engagement and women's self-employment

Gender equality is an objective of the program. Equal participation and integration of both genders in all projects from design through execution is expected. Projects selected for funding will have to demonstrate long-term self-sustainability, high visibility and stress gender equality.

Please not that Canada Fund can support only a limited number of projects. Therefore, this year Canada Fund will not consider projects which are primarily focussed on capacity building activities.

The maximum contribution from the Canada Fund for one project is usually CAD $30,000.

Proposals which do not clearly state how they meet the above criteria, in addition to the stated financial and time limits, will not be considered.

The deadline for submitting proposals is July 1, 2013.  The proposal should be submitted by email in .doc or .docx format to:
