Social purpose organizations are key levers in helping create more resilient, equitable and sustainable communities. Across Canada, they are operating at many different stages of development. The IRP is designed to help social purpose organizations build their readiness to receive investment. Community Foundations of Canada is one of 5 national organizations delivering the Investment Readiness Program, with support from the Government of Canada. There will be several rounds of applications, the first of which will be open from January 8 to February 10th 2020. Further deadlines will be announced in 2020.
