11/24/20 5:00 PM PST
Grants to Canada nonprofit organizations, local and provincial governments, businesses, educational institutions, and individuals for programs that seek to integrate immigrants and newcomers into the country. Funding is intended to support short-term projects that improve the capacity of a national program to assist new settlers. Priority will be shown to projects that support remote service delivery, enhance employment outcomes, and overcome racism.
Through Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)’s Settlement Program, the IRCC works with many partners in the delivery of services to newcomers to Canada and supports their integration into Canadian communities. The purpose of service delivery improvements (SDI) funding is to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the Settlement Program.
Although activities funded under SDI may offer services directly to newcomers to support research and testing of various innovative service delivery approaches, the overarching theme of potential SDI projects should be indirect, with a focus on building knowledge and capacity of the sector and around new and existing service delivery models.
SDI projects included under the Indirect Services theme include:

IRCC also has a responsibility to support the vitality of official language minority communities, satisfy the principle of substantive equality, and adapt its services to meet the needs of the official language minority population.
