The Government of Canada is currently accepting concepts from organizations interested in receiving funding through the Social Development Partnerships Program - Children and Families (SDPP), for projects to increase awareness and take-up of the Canada Learning Bond (CLB).

A concept is an idea for a proposed project. It provides preliminary, high-level information about project objectives, activities and results.

1. Overview

It is recommended that you read the following guide in its entirety before you start completing your Application for Funding. This guide contains important details on the information and supporting documentation which Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) requires to assess your application.

We also suggest that you print or save a copy of this guide in order to refer to it once this Call for Concepts (CFC) is closed. After January 16, 2018, this guide will no longer be available online.

This is a competitive process and not all applications submitted under this CFC will be retained, as funding is limited and subject to ESDC's yearly budget considerations and allocation of funds by Parliament.
