Canadian Partnership Fund

Published: Wednesday, 11/23/2005 12:00 am EST

The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) announced this week a $15 million Canadian Partnership Fund will be running by Feb. 2006. It will replace two project funds ­ the NGO Project Facility and the Environment and Sustainable Development Program ­ that were valued at roughly the same amount before their abrupt cancellation last February. Much like the new program, small and medium-sized non-government organizations will be able to apply for project funding based on CIDA's five priority sectors: basic education, private-sector development, governance, health and environmental sustainability. In total this week, International Cooperation Minister Aileen Carroll allocated $147.7 million over five years already pledged in this year's budget to the Canadian Partnership Branch, which deals with civil society.
