Apply for Funding - Criteria and Eligibility
Eligible applicants must be Canadian legal entities, capable of entering into a contract to deliver a project. This may include: organizations and associations, cooperatives, marketing boards, aboriginal groups, for-profit companies and individuals.
Federal, provincial and territorial government departments or agencies, and colleges and universities are not eligible. However, if university or government researchers are the most qualified to carry out project activities, an industry group can contract the work to those respective researchers.
