Call for Concepts – Early Learning and Child Care
July 6, 2018
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is pleased to advise that Employment and Social Development Canada has launched a call for concepts from organizations interested in receiving funding from the Social Development Partnerships Program. This program provides funding for innovative projects related to early learning and child care service delivery.
This is the first step of a two-step process. In this first step, applicants are invited to submit a proposal that describes an idea for an innovative project, including preliminary information on the objectives, the activities and the results of the innovative project.
In the second step, applicants whose initial proposal is retained will be invited to develop a full proposal. At that time, applicants will be asked to provide additional information about the proposed innovative project and submit additional supporting documents.
The call for concepts is open to organizations with a mandate that focuses on early learning and child care or applicants who have a partner for this project whose mandate focuses on early learning and child care.
This process seeks to:
- Identify and develop innovative approaches that respond to existing and emerging early learning and child care issues.
- Develop and share knowledge of existing and emerging early learning and child care issues.
- Foster partnerships and networks to address early learning and child care issues.
The deadline to submit a concept is July 20, 2018.
“I encourage any interested organizations in Yellowhead to submit a proposal to this call for concepts,” concluded MP Eglinski.
