AgriScience Program – Clusters: Step 6. After you apply

Step 6. After you apply

After you submit your application, we will send you an acknowledgement notice.

Note: You should not consider an application as submitted to the program until you receive the acknowledgement notice.

Service standards

Our goal is to:

  • respond to general inquiries made to our phone number or email address before the end of the next business day
  • acknowledge receipt of your application within one business day
  • assess your application and send you an approval or a rejection notification letter within 100 business days of receiving a complete application package

Please note that even if all eligibility criteria are met, the submission of an application creates no obligation on the part of the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to provide funding for the project. The Minister retains discretion to determine, based on other public policies and public interest considerations, whether an application will ultimately receive funding.
