Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations can be eligible for funding, provided they are working with local partners and on local projects that are consistent with the objectives of the CFLI. Similarly, municipal, regional or national government institutions may receive funding, provided that their projects are essentially local in nature. The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects, which deliver measurable results.
The following types of organizations are not eligible for Canada Fund funding:
  • Political parties
  • Military organizations
  • Organizations not legally registered with the Ukrainian authorities;
  • Commercial institutions or individual entrepreneurs.
