Apply to the Fisheries and Aquaculture Clean Technology Adoption Program: 5. Evaluation

The anticipatory call for request for proposals for FACTAP projects is now closed.

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
    • reductions in greenhouse gas emissions
    • 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:

  • your project meets the program's eligibility requirements
  • we approve  financial support for your project
