Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada: Settlement and Resettlement Programs 2019
April 12, 2019
Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) administers the Settlement Program and Resettlement Assistance Program to help newcomers settle and adapt to life in Canada, setting them on a path to integration and full citizenship. Through these programs, IRCC works with many partners to deliver a set of ongoing high-quality services to newcomers.
The purpose of this call for proposals (CFP) is to establish a comprehensive set of Settlement and Resettlement Assistance Program services across Canada. Funding for recommended projects will commence on April 1, 2020 and will be eligible for a duration of up to 5 years, ending no later than March 31, 2025. Applicants may apply to receive funding under the Settlement and/or Resettlement Assistance Programs but must submit separate applications for each program. These funding guidelines are a tool to help applicants develop their proposals. All applicants are responsible for reading the funding guidelines in full.
Applicants applying to receive Settlement Program funding can propose customized services to address specific gaps or current needs within their community or region (see Settlement Program application section for details). Customized Services are enhanced, refined or niche areas in which IRCC would like to see expansion, or customization, in response to emerging or specific client needs. The priorities outlined in these guidelines are based on valuable input gathered through extensive local consultations with settlement, resettlement, and other stakeholders across all regions.
