Moving to another large bilateral agency, the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), it used to have a wide presence across the developing world until the year 2009 after which it implemented the Aid Effectiveness Agenda to concentrate 80% of its bilateral resources in 20% of the countries. Nevertheless, it continues to remain one of the largest bilaterals offering aid assistance to NGOs and governments around the world.
To know whether your NGO can seek funding from CIDA, it is first important to understand whether your country is included in those 20% to fulfill the basic eligibility criteria. Below is a map highlighting the countries where CIDA provides most of its financial support to NGOs and governmental agencies.
If your country is listed, then you can start looking through the website of the Canadian Embassy in your country. For example, we have below Ukraine as one of the priority countries of Canadian aid. When we go through the website of the Embassy of Canada in this country, we can easily trace the Development Cooperation page, where you can see a link to the Canada Fund, which is a unique mechanism to support NGOs in Ukraine.
