We are pleased to deliver the IRP in collaboration with local community foundations across Canada. Together, CFC and Regional Partners will promote the program at the local or regional level, answer questions from potential applicants, adjudicate applications, and administer payments to successful applicants. If you are a social purpose organization interested in applying to the IRP, we invite you to peruse the list below to see if you are in an area served by a Regional Partner and the information for their key contact for the program. If you are not in an area that is not served by one of these Regional Partners, we invite you to connect directly with CFC.
