Funding

CIRDI was established in 2013 under a Contribution Agreement with Global Affairs Canada (GAC). Since then, CIRDI has received funding for additional work from Global Affairs Canada (GAC), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and others.

CIRDI has a five-year Program Development Strategy (2017-2021) in place to secure new programming and funding that aligns with CIRDI’s vision, mission and values. As we grow, we will continue to maintain our independence as a centre of expertise in natural resource-led international development. We will not accept funding that imposes limits or restrictions on our independence in offering expert advice, training, research or resulting publications.

We are deeply committed to the fundamental values of independence, transparency and accountability, both as a means to foster better development outcomes and to maintain the integrity of our work. In keeping with these values, we will not accept funding or engage in partnerships that seek to impose limits or restrictions on our independence in advice, training, research, findings, conclusions or resulting publications.

As we plan for our future growth beyond our initial funding from GAC, we are actively seeking new sources of funding and support that are aligned with our vision, mission and values. As we grow, we will continue to maintain our independence as a centre of expertise in natural resource led international development. We will not accept funding that imposes limits or restrictions on our independence in advice, training, research, findings, conclusions or resulting publications.
