The CFLI is a program designed to support small-scale, high-impact projects that 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 Embassy of Canada. 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.

The average CFLI contribution in Serbia, Montenegro and North Macedonia is $24,000 Canadian dollars. This year, the maximum annual CFLI contribution to a project is $30,000 Canadian dollars.
