Canadian Trade and Investment Facility for Development (CTIF)

South and South-East Asia - Global

2018-2025 | Global Affairs Canada | CAD 11.6M

The Canadian Trade and Investment Facility (CTIF) is supporting national and regional economic development initiatives that have a high potential to reduce poverty in developing countries in the Asia Pacific. CTIF is a demand-driven mechanism that responds to local partners’ needs. Regional institutions, governments, non-governmental actors and the private sector are able to request technical assistance from CTIF to support the achievement or delivery of self-identified priority initiatives or reforms. These initiatives are then delivered by Canadian and international contractors selected by the CTIF team through competitive procurement processes. TA projects can last from several months to up to two years in duration at a maximum budget of CAD 500K each. TA modalities include the deployment of experts, study tours, joint research, exchanges and conferences. Cowater is responsible for the overall implementation and management of the CTIF, including: strategic planning and selection of TA requests; identification, deployment and management of subcontractors; and monitoring, learning, reporting and communications.
