Global Affairs Canada has launched a call for development proposals from Canadian small and medium organizations (SMOs). You have until January 10, 2018 to submit a proposal for a development project worth between $500,000 - $2 million that fits the following criteria.
Objective of this call
Under this call, preliminary proposals must contribute to the achievement of the objectives of Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy, which seeks to reduce extreme poverty and build a more peaceful, inclusive and prosperous world. The policy recognizes that promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls is the most effective approach to achieving this goal. Proposed projects must align with at least one of the action areas outlined in Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy.
Action Area 1 (Core Action Area): Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women and Girls
Action Area 2: Human Dignity (please note that proposals for humanitarian assistance projects will not be considered under this call)
Action Area 3: Growth that Works for Everyone
Action Area 4: Environment and Climate Action
Action Area 5: Inclusive Governance
Action Area 6: Peace and Security
SMO Eligibility Criteria
Detailed criteria are on the website, so I’ll just flag the revenue cut-offs:
“the consolidated revenue in your organization’s financial statements is equal to or less than $10 million (this limitation does not apply to educational institutions) and your organization does not have annual overseas expenditures exceeding $2 million in development assistance (i.e. projects administered with the promotion of the economic development and welfare of developing countries as their main objective (regardless of the funding source)).”
You can find details about the process on the call website.
