Workshop – Demystifying Partnerships with Global Affairs Canada (Vancouver)

January 21 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

BCCIC is pleased to offer a unique opportunity to attend an in-person information session with staff from Global Affairs Canada to explore the nuts and bolts of partnering with GAC and applying for GAC funding. The session will take place on Tuesday January 21st from 1pm to 4.30 pm at BCCIC’s SDG Hub at 268 Keefer St, on the third floor of the Sun Wah in Unit 311. The event will provide information and insight into questions that are frequently asked by Global Affairs Canada’s partners, or potential partners, including:

  • What are the main elements of Global Affairs Canada’s international assistance?
  • What elements should be included when designing a project for Global Affairs Canada funding?
  • How do selection processes (calls for proposals and unsolicited proposals) work?
  • What happens after a project is selected?
  • How does Global Affairs Canada work with partners during project implementation?

This workshop will be facilitated by Vaughn Lance. Vaughn has over 25 years of experience managing international development programs with Global Affairs Canada and CIDA.  He is currently the Director responsible for calls for proposals and financial management for the Partnership for Development Innovation Branch of GAC.  In previous positions, Vaughn has been responsible for coordinating the implementation of Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy, economic growth policy, and development programming with the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and regional development banks.  He has also served as a Country Program Director for India, China, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, and Mongolia and as a senior development officer responsible for Southeast Asia and Russia.  Earlier in his career, Vaughn served as a policy advisor to the Minister of National Defence, the Minister of Health, the Minister of Communications, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
