The Fund for Innovation and Transformation (FIT) is a national innovation initiative launched in May 2019. FIT is designed to support Canadian small and medium-sized organizations (SMOs) testing innovative solutions that advance gender equality in the Global South. The program is open to civil society organizations, social enterprises, post-secondary institutions and the private sector.
FIT has provided successful applicants with $150K-$175K over a 6-15 month period to test their solutions in partnership with local organizations.In addition, the program seeks to foster collective learning and build the capacity of SMOs through the creation of knowledge-sharing spaces and practices. FIT’s goal is to cultivate a working environment in which SMOs are empowered to experiment, fail, adapt and try again.
