Deadline Alert: Aboriginal SPF for the Energy & Mining sectors

Due May 17th, 2012

The Skills and Partnership Fund (SPF) invites the submission of concept papers from Aboriginal organizations interested in obtaining time-limited contribution funding for projects in the energy and mining sectors. The projects must demonstrate partnership-based approaches to the development of training-to-employment activities, skills development, or service delivery improvement for Aboriginal people. Projects focused on training-to-employment activities with concrete employment outcomes will receive priority consideration over projects focused on developing skills or enhancing labour market service delivery.

Funding levels will vary from project to project but cannot exceed $10 million per project. Funding is negotiated based on anticipated costs and commitments from other sources. Projects may start no earlier than September 2012 and must end by March 31, 2015.
