The Faculty Mobility for Partnership Building Program (FMPBP) is part of Global Affairs Canada’s International Scholarships Program.

The Government of Canada announced FMPBP in 2017 to support the efforts of Canadian post-secondary institutions to expand and diversify their international collaborations.

The program enables professors at Canadian post-secondary institutions to pursue short-term research and/or teaching activities in Latin America and the Caribbean as a means of exploring, creating and advancing institutional partnerships in the areas of research, student mobility, joint programming, capacity building, and others.

The primary objective of the exchange is to create new institutional collaborations and/or to strengthen existing agreements between Canadian and non-Canadian post-secondary institutions eligible under the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP).


To be eligible, candidates must be a full-time professor at a Canadian post-secondary institution.

Canadian post-secondary institutions must be a Designated Learning Institution (DLI).

Host institutions must:be located in one of the following ELAP-eligible countries
