AgriInnovate Program: Step 3. How to apply

Step 3. How to apply

Intake period: Closed

New applications to the AgriInnovate Program will no longer be accepted as of October 1, 2022. This is to ensure that approved projects have sufficient time to complete their activities by the end date of the program, which is March 31, 2023. In the interim, the program will focus its efforts on processing current applications. Information regarding the future of the program will be posted here as soon as it’s available.

Before you apply, please read the Applicant guide for detailed information on eligibility criteria, support and funding available, and the application process.

The AgriInnovate program has a two-stage intake process involving:

  • Stage One: Pre-Screening
  • Stage Two: Application

Stage One: Pre-Screening

The first step in the application process is to complete the AgriInnovate Pre-Screening Form. Detailed instructions on how to complete the pre-screening form can be found in Annex B: Part 1 of the Applicant guide.

Stage Two: Application

Proposals that are deemed to meet the priorities of the program will be invited to proceed to stage two of the application process, and are required to submit an online full application with required supporting documentation. Applicants that have been invited to submit a full application (stage 2) must use the online application template and provide all supporting documents. If a submitted application is assessed as incomplete, the applicant will be notified and will have 30 business days to provide the missing information before the file is closed. An invitation to submit a full application does not constitute an offer of funding.

Note: Proposals will be assessed based on information provided in both the pre-screening form and on the information provided in the full application package. Annex B: Part 2 of the Applicant guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to complete a full application and outlines a list of supporting documentation required to complete your application package.

Applications will be taken on a continuous basis from the launch of the program until March 31, 2023, or until funding has been fully committed or otherwise announced by the program.

We are currently experiencing a delay up to 130 days in processing applications.
