From: Employment and Social Development Canada

COVID-19

Due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, Grants and Contributions projects are affected.

Consult what you should know if your project is affected by the COVID-19.

Funding programs from Employment and Social Development Canada are government grants and contributions that help support jobs, training, and social development.

Government grants and contributions

Grants are unconditional transfer payments that the Government provides to individuals or organizations for activities that meet eligibility criteria set by the funding program.

Contributions are similar to grants, except that, in order to receive funding and be reimbursed for specific costs, recipients need to meet certain performance conditions. The government can also audit the recipients' use of funding.
