The Canadian Embassy in Ukraine, under the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) program, supports small, but highly effective projects that meet the Government of Canada's international assistance priorities. The program is aimed at supporting initiatives developed mainly by local partners.
The CFLI is also called upon to maintain positive bilateral relations between Canada and the recipient countries and their civil society, by deepening contacts and supporting local initiatives.
