5. Evaluation

Program officials will review your application to ensure that the proposed project meets eligibility and other requirements for potential funding. This evaluation includes checking:

  • your:
    • eligibility
    • ability to start and successfully complete the project
  • that the proposed project:
    • is for an eligible activity
    • addresses program objectives
    • is of overall quality and is feasible
    • generates environmental benefits to the sector
    • includes a cash contribution by your company
    • includes a letter of support from the lead provincial/territorial fisheries/aquaculture agency where the project is to be completed

Financial leverage from other sources outside the FACTAP is a key consideration. Projects with multiple and greater sources of funding may rank higher than those without.

Evaluation criteria

Key criteria that will be considered in examining your proposal include:

  • technical and financial feasibility
  • potential for long-term sustainability
  • alignment and support for federal, provincial/territorial priorities, including:
    • protection of aquatic species and habitats

    • clean, safe and well managed water
    • reductions in plastics, chemicals and other environmental contaminants
    • improved employment stability or creation in remote and Indigenous communities
  • value for the money, such as:
    • benefits to multiple versus single producers
    • geographic coverage (e.g., local, regional/provincial or national application)
  • identification of specific environmental benefits, such as:
    • amount of energy saved / greenhouse gas eliminated
    • water saved and/or reduced
    • tons of plastics eliminated
    • types and weights of fisheries bycatch avoided
    • reductions in pathogen loadings, etc.
  • clear details on how savings will be measured and the standard units of measure, such as kWh or litres of water
  • other performance measures that may include provincial requirements, such as jobs created

We'll contact you to develop a contribution agreement if:
