The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives – Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea and Sao Tome and Principe (2024)

The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (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 one of the following CFLI thematic priorities:

  • Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
  • Inclusive governance, including diversity, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.
  • Peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention, peacebuilding and Children and Armed Conflict.
  • Environment and Climate Action, with a focus on adaptation and mitigation, reducing plastic waste and pollution, and increasing the participation of women and youth in these areas.


  • The average CFLI contribution is $30,000 to $60,000 Canadian Dollars (CAD$100,000 is the maximum allocation amount for a project eligible under CFLI).
