All applicants must demonstrate that their activities have a national geographic reach.

Individuals, governments, Indigenous authorities, and Canadian organizations that generally deliver regional programming are not eligible.

Eligible projects may include:

  • learning materials.
  • websites, mobile applications, or other new media tools.
  • group activities such as conferences and workshops.
  • establishment of networks and partnerships.
  • large-scale works of reference; and
  • research and publications on current trends and public policy issues about Canada.
