The Government of Canada is working together with its national and international partners to advance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to build a more peaceful, inclusive, and prosperous world. The agenda includes 17 sustainable development goals that aim to address today’s most pressing social, economic and environmental challenges, including poverty, inequality and climate change.
The government has announced the launch of the 2023 call for proposals under the Sustainable Development Goals Funding Program. Financial assistance will be provided to eligible businesses in the form of grants or contributions. A total of approximately $3.5 million per year for three years will be allocated for this round of funding. The expected results of this call for proposal are to fund projects that will increase public awareness of the SDGs, particularly within equity-deserving groups or individuals in vulnerable populations, as well as to measure and report on the SDGs at the community level.
