The Foundation for International Training (FIT) is a capacity building organization based in Toronto, Canada. We work to assist governments, civil society and the private sector build the institutions, knowledge and skills to meet the challenges of eradicating poverty. Over the course of 38 years, FIT has established a solid reputation for innovation in development practice and effective management and implementation of multi-stakeholder, multi-million dollar projects. FIT has worked in more than 50 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East through programs financed by a number of institutions including the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD), the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and United Nations agencies and developing country governments themselves.

This experience has enabled FIT to cultivate solid expertise in all aspects of capacity development that is applied in a wide range of sectors. FIT has assisted governments and civil society organizations improve systems of governance by strengthening mechanisms that protect the most vulnerable; introducing proven approaches such as social accountability and active citizenship; managing collaborative studies that inform policy formulation; and building professionalism in public broadcasting and media. We have contributed to the development of vibrant institutions that support sustainable economic growth by combining business know-how and understanding of social issues to support micro, small and medium enterprises and encourage creation of quality employment opportunities. These programs have resulted in positive change in a wide range of areas, including:

  • public sector management and governance;
  • employment creation, micro and small enterprise development;
  • environmental management;
  • management of the mining sector;
  • gender equality; and
  • strengthening civil society and communities.
