    ABOUT THE SDG FUNDING PROGRAM

    The SDG Funding Program is split into two processes. A continuous intake for call for proposals for grants, and a call for proposals for contributions.

    Continuous intake for call for proposals for grants

    The continuous intake for call for proposals is intended to support projects aimed at building awareness and furthering Canada’s implementation of the 2030 Agenda, as well as increasing partnerships and networks, and advancing research. The government is seeking to fund projects that are up to 12 months in duration. Eligible applicants can receive up to $100,000 in grant funding.

    The continuous intake for call for proposals for grants was launched on May 7, 2019 and ESDC will be accepting proposals on an ongoing basis. The process will remain open until the objectives of the call are met.

    *Please note that the call for proposal is now closed*

    Given the focus, quality, and volume of applications for funding received to date, it has been determined that the objectives of the Sustainable Development Goals Funding Program have been met. As a result, the call for proposals for grants closed on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at 12 p.m.(noon) Eastern Time. Applicants must not start their proposed projects until notified by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) of approval and an agreement has been signed between the organization and a representative of ESDC. Please note that not all applications submitted under this application process will be approved. Funding is limited and subject to budget considerations of ESDC and allocation of funds by Parliament. Decisions are final and there is no appeal process.

    We anticipate that projects could start as early as Summer 2019.

    The call for proposals for contributions is intended to fund projects that focus on research, foster innovation and investment for the SDGs, create resources to enhance knowledge sharing including the contribution of Indigenous knowledge, and help establish accountability frameworks to support impact measurement and demonstrate progress.

    The call for proposals for contributions will be open from June 28, 2019 to September 19, 2019. Eligible organizations can apply for up to $300,000 per year for a maximum duration of 36 months.
