Call for Proposals – Western Economic Diversification Canada
The Western Diversification Program (WDP) is the main program through which Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) makes strategic investments in initiatives with not-for-profit organizations, including First Nations, Tribal Councils, Métis and Inuit organizations, that enhance and strengthen the economy of Western Canada.
The WDP Call for Proposals (WDP-CFP) process allows for a comparative analysis of projects against clear criteria; strengthens the department’s responsiveness to economic trends and industry needs; and ensures alignment to Government of Canada plans and priorities.
- WDP is seeking applications under the 2017 WDP-CFP that directly support one (or more) of the following WD investment priorities.
- Clean Technology; and/or
- Indigenous Economic Growth
- WDP-CFP is also seeking applications for the Economic Development Initiative (EDI) to enhance the vitality of francophone communities.
The next WDP-CFP intake will open on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, and close on Thursday, February 23, 2017.
