5. After you apply

Once an application has been submitted, an acknowledgement notice will be forwarded to the applicant. An applicant should not consider their application as submitted to the Program until they receive the acknowledgement notice.

Proposal Review, Due Diligence Process, Selection and Notification

Project proposals will be evaluated by a Review Committee comprised of panel members with relevant areas of expertise, according to the mandatory and merit criteria (section 4 and section 5 of the Applicant’s Guide).

Applications will undergo a due diligence assessment, which could include a confirmation of the specifics provided in the project proposal. Natural Resources Canada may request that the Applicant provide clarification to support the due diligence assessment.

Final selection decision remains the sole discretion of Natural Resources Canada.

Following the selection, both successful and unsuccessful Applicants will be notified, and unsuccessful Applicants will be offered the opportunity to receive formal feedback on the review of their project proposal.


Successful Applicants will be notified through a Letter of Conditional Approval and will be invited to begin negotiating a contribution agreement. However, this letter does not imply eligibility for expenses incurred. The expenditures incurred between the receipt of the Letter of Conditional Approval and the date on which a contribution agreement is signed by Canada fall outside of the eligible expenditures period; although they may count towards total project costs, they are not eligible for reimbursement by Natural Resources Canada. It is important to consult with Natural Resources Canada during this period prior to incurring expenditures.
