2019 Call for Concept Notes: Development Impact Window

Canadian Small and Medium Organizations for Impact and Innovation

Deadline for submitting an application for this call is July 10, 2019, 12 p.m. (noon) ET.

This call for concept notes is part of Global Affairs Canada’s five-year pilot initiative targeted at Canadian small and medium organizations (SMOs). This initiative seeks to engage Canadian SMOs in international assistance efforts in areas consistent with Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy.

The total amount of funding available under this call for concept notes is up to $36 million over five years. Global Affairs Canada may fund any number of proposals or none, up to the maximum funding available.

You must submit your application through the Partners@International portal before the deadline. If you are applying on behalf of a group of organizations that would sign the funding agreement with Global Affairs Canada, please ensure that each organization is registered in the Partners@International portal and has uploaded all required documents. Please see details under the “Organization eligibility” section below.

We will not accept any late submissions. Please read the portal instructions carefully and plan to submit your application at least three business days in advance of the call deadline to ensure that technical difficulties do not prevent you from submitting your concept note by July 10, 2019, 12 p.m. (noon) ET.

The submission of a concept note is the first step of a two-stage application process. Funding will not be provided on the basis of a concept note. At the second stage, we will invite a limited number of organizations to submit a full proposal. 

Be sure to review the instructions in How to apply for funding through a call before beginning your application.
