IRCC Launches National Call for Proposals for Newcomer Programming

As part of its commitment to deliver high quality settlement services to newcomers, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is issuing a call for proposals for the Settlement and Resettlement Assistance programs

The National Call for Proposals (CFP) intake process has been streamlined since the previous CFP to improve the experience for service provider organizations and maximize funding flexibility. Extensive national consultations with partners and stakeholders have identified the principles and key priority areas that will be addressed through the call. These include fostering the entrepreneurial spirit of newcomers and engagement with the private sector, as well as an increased focus on the integration of vulnerable populations, such as refugees, youth and LGBTQ2+. 

Applications for the first CFP 2019 are due before 6:00 p.m. (Saskatchewan time) on April 12, 2019. 

Funding for recommended projects is expected to begin on April 1, 2020 and will end no later than March 31, 2025. 

Quick facts 

  • In 2019-20, IRCC will invest nearly $778 million to support the settlement needs of newcomers across the provinces and territories (except Quebec). 

  • In spring 2019, IRCC will be seeking applications through a second process that will focus on indirect settlement services that are not included in the first CFP 2019 (e.g., sector capacity building). 

  • Applications for the first CFP 2019 are due before 5:00 p.m. PST on April 12, 2019.

Funding for recommended projects is expected to begin on April 1, 2020 and will end no later than March 31, 2025.
