About the Investment Readiness Program (IRP)

Funded by the Government of Canada, IRP supports social purpose organizations as they contribute to solving pressing social, cultural and environmental challenges across Canada.

Its goal is to help social purpose organizations build their capacity to participate in Canada’s growing social finance market and prepare for the Government of Canada’s broader investment in social finance via the Social Finance Fund.

Applications for the next streams will be open in Fall 2022. Let us help you get ready for the IRP funding.

Community Foundations of Canada is proud to serve as one of the IRP’s national funding intermediaries alongside the National Association of Friendship Centres, Chantier de l’économie sociale, the National Aboriginal Capital Corporations Association (NACCA), and the Canadian Women’s Foundation (CWF).

CFC is collaborating with regional partners across the country to award IRP funding, including in Quebec, where CFC and community foundations have collaborated with the Chantier de l’économie sociale.

Join us to learn more about the Investment Readiness Program.

Sessions held on Wednesdays on a bi-weekly schedule, starting Sep 7th.
