The federal government has launched a call for proposals under the Sustainable Development Goals Funding Program for 2019-2020 to support the work of stakeholders furthering Canada's implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The Agenda is a call to action to work together as an international community to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The federal government is committed to supporting a whole-of-society approach to Canada's implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals by working in partnership with organizations to accelerate progress on this effort.
The government is seeking to fund projects that are up to 12 months in duration, and that implement innovative approaches or complement and augment existing activities, in order to achieve two or more of the following objectives:
- enhance multi-stakeholder efforts by promoting partnerships and bridging efforts across sectors
- raise awareness and support for the Sustainable Development Goals
- ensure that Canada's progress on this international effort leaves no one behind, including vulnerable or marginalized groups
- foster and integrate Indigenous and local knowledge into approaches and efforts to achieve the 2030 Agenda
