Description of funding

In 2015, Canada and all other United Nations Member States, committed to implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which set 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to eliminate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity by the year 2030.

In November 2018, we launched the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Funding Program to support projects aimed at:

  • building awareness of the 2030 Agenda
  • increase partnerships and networks
  • advance research
  • further Canada’s implementation of the 2030 Agenda

We are currently accepting applications, on an ongoing basis, from organizations interested in receiving up to $100,000 in grant funding from the SDG Funding Program for projects that are up to 12 months in duration.

Eligible organizations may submit only one application for funding, per fiscal year, in this process. Fiscal years start April 1 and end March 31.
