    The Embassy of Canada in Senegal is pleased to launch its annual call for proposals for the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) for each of its five countries of accreditation: Senegal, The Gambia, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau and Guinea.

The programme is directed at projects conceived and designed predominantly by local partners. Projects are selected and approved by the relevant Canadian embassy. 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 is between CA$30,000 to CA$60,000. All contributions are made in Canadian dollars and then converted to US dollars
