You will need to log into the online grant management and follow-up system (GSS) and follow the steps.

Steps

  • Declaration for the current year to the Registraire des entreprises du Québec
  • Your organization’s latest annual activity report and audited financial statements

2 - Choose a call for projects

You must identify the call for projects you are responding to. It may be open or invitational. Make sure that the call for projects has not expired.

Provide the following detailed information about your project:

  • Project summary
  • Impacts, outcomes and activities
  • Location of the project
  • Priority actions
  • Target populations

  • Detailed project budget
  • Any other relevant documents, including letters of support from project partners
  • Resolution of your board designating the person authorized to sign the agreement
