The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives – Algeria (2024)

The Embassy of Canada in Algeria is pleased to launch its annual call for proposals for the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).

Program description

The CFLI is a program designed to support small-scale, high-impact projects in developing countries that are aligned with the thematic priorities of Canada’s Department of Global Affairs. The programme targets projects designed and developed primarily by local partners. Projects are selected and approved by the Canadian embassy or high commission concerned. The CFLI also serves to support bilateral relations between Canada and recipient countries and their civil societies, by strengthening contacts and supporting local initiatives.

The average contribution from the CFLI is CAN$31,000 (CAN$100,000 is the maximum amount allocated for an eligible project under the CFLI). Consult the currency converter for local currency equivalents. Please note that all contributions are made in Canadian dollars and then converted into the local currency.
