NOTICE: 2017-2018 Call for Proposals Update

Effective December 1st, 2016. The Indian Residential Schools Adjudication Secretariat (IRSAS) has completed the Call for Proposals (CFP) process for the 2017-2018 fiscal year for Group IAP funding. The IRSAS has implemented a CFP to conduct a fair, transparent and equal opportunity for all interested groups to apply for Group IAP contribution funding.

For Applicants:

Unfortunately, due to limited funding, IRSAS is unable to approve all proposals submitted under the CFP. Funding is limited and is subject to budgetary considerations of the Group IAP program. It should also be noted that decisions are final and applicants have no right of appeal.

For more information about Group IAP funding, please refer to the General Information about the Group IAP Program section or contact the Group IAP Unit at the following coordinates:
