Step 3: Submit the PFP application form

All forms must be submitted to the CNSC’s PFP Administrator. Prior to submitting your form, please review, sign and date it, and keep a copy for your records. There are three ways to submit your form: email, fax or mail. Please see the PFP Guide for submission requirements, date(s) of receipt, and contact information. If you encounter any problems, please contact the PFP administrator.

Service standards

  • Funding applicants will be informed of the outcome of the funding decision within 45 business days of the application closing date or, if there is no closing date, following receipt of a funding application.

The CNSC has developed Participant Funding Program (PFP) service standards to publicly state the level of performance that funding applicants can reasonably expect to encounter under normal circumstances. These external service standards for the PFP are published to demonstrate the CNSC's commitment to transparent management, accountability for results and citizen-focused service delivery.

Performance against these service standards will be tracked, and the results will be made available annually.
