The Conference Fund of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) reimburses expenses, such as registration, travel, accommodation, meals, incidentals and visa fees, incurred to bring eligible delegates to conferences, workshops, seminars and related events that support CIDA’s programming priorities. Delegates/participants may not apply to the Fund directly; the conference organizers must apply on their behalf.
Only countries and territories eligible for Canadian Development Assistance. Only organizations may apply for funding towards a conference.
Proposals can be sent at any time during the year, but a complete application form with supporting documents must be received at least 16 weeks before the start date of a conference.
