  • The typical contribution is expected to be in the range of CAD $15,000-$35,000 for each individual project.
  • Larger projects may be considered on an exceptional basis, with appropriate justification for use of funds.

Project Duration

All project activities must be completed between the date of signature of the contribution agreement and February 28, 2019.
