Major Funding Announced for Small and Medium International Cooperation Organizations
Together with the Inter-Council Network of Provincial and Regional Council for International Cooperation (ICN) we are pleased to announce that Global Affairs Canada has launched the 2017 Call for Preliminary Proposals – Development Impact Window – Canadian Small and Medium Organizations (SMOs) for Impact and Innovation. The launch follows substantial research and many years of national planning and discussions by the ICN on behalf of SMOs from coast to coast to coast.
The Development Impact Window is one of three components of a $100 million allocation toward a five-year pilot initiative supporting SMOs for international assistance. This fund was announced by the Honorable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Cooperation and La Francophonie on May 9th, 2017, and is aligned with Canada’s new Feminist International Assistance Policy. The other two components are a Fund for Innovation and Transformation (FIT), and a capacity-building program, also for SMOs. We anticipate details of these components will be released soon.
More information on the launch of the fund can be found on the Global Affairs Canada web page.
