Social Development Partnerships Program - Innovative Projects Fund

The Government of Canada is currently accepting applications from organizations interested in receiving funding from the Social Development Partnerships Program - Children and Families for innovative projects related to early learning and child care service delivery.

The Government of Canada’s 2016/2017 budget allocated $100 million towards innovation, and $10 million of that has been allotted to this competition.

The federal government says it wants to improve early learning and child care services for all Canadian families and their children.

The aim is to identify projects that explore, test and develop innovative approaches. These approaches support early learning and child care service delivery. They include the development of knowledge, tools, methodologies, solutions and best practices. They target children under six years of age and their families.

Not-for-profit organizations, provincial/territorial entities and Indigenous organizations whose mandate focuses on early learning and child care, or that have partners whose mandate focuses on early learning and child care are encouraged to apply.

The deadline to submit concepts is July 20, 2018
