The Western Diversification Program (WDP) is the main program through which Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) makes strategic investments in initiatives that enhance and strengthen the economy of Western Canada.
WD is moving to a Call for Proposals (CFP) process for the Western Diversification Program. The CFP process will be launched spring 2014.
Applications are no longer being accepted through the invitation to apply process. Proponents who have previously submitted an application to the department are invited to contact their WD Business Officer for more information on their existing application.
The Call for Proposals (CFP) process is a fair, open, transparent bi-annual process whereby interested parties develop project proposals and apply for funding to carry out activities that support objectives and priorities identified by the Department.
As part of WD's mandate to promote the development and diversification of the Western Canadian economy, we are committed in responding to economic trends and industry needs. Through feedback from consultation with stakeholders and regional partners WD is implementing the CFP process to ensure targeted investment that will benefit regional economic development into the future.
WD will be launching a WDP CFP process in spring 2014.
