Western Diversification Program – Call for Proposals

The Western Diversification Program (WDP) is one of the programs through which Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) makes strategic investments in initiatives that enhance and strengthen the economy of Western Canada.

The WDP Call for Proposals (CFP) process is a widely accepted business process whereby interested parties develop project proposals and apply for funding. The WDP Call for Proposals (WDP-CFP) process allows for a comparative analysis of projects against clear criteria; strengthens the department's responsiveness to economic trends and industry needs; and ensures alignment to Government of Canada plans and priorities.

The second application intake period for the WDP Call for Proposals is now closed. Information regarding the next intake period will be communicated at a later date. >> Read More (Article Link)
