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

2. Your application is reviewed

A complete assessment of your application against the objectives and criteria of the program will be carried out.

At any point after you apply, we may contact you for more information.

Should your application be approved, you will be required to enter into a Contribution Agreement with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to receive funding.
