FINANCIAL SUPPORT

©Mathieu Dupuis

The Société du Plan Nord (SPN) is the key body responsible for rolling out components of the 2020-2023 Northern Action Plan. To complement the initiatives of government departments and bodies under the plan, the SPN is proposing financial support to actively contribute to the concerted sustainable development of the territory, bearing in mind the distinctive nature of northern latitudes.

FONDS D’INITIATIVES NORDIQUES

The Fonds d’initiatives nordiques (FIN) has been implemented to support projects of interest to northern communities.

The projects must fall within the scope of one of the strategic directions of the 2020-2023 Northern Action Plan, namely, access to Québec’s northern territory, a strong, diversified economic fabric, an attractive, dynamic living environment, and a northern environment to be preserved.

The FIN comprises two sections:

 

Section A: Community Development and Environmental Conservation

Section A seeks to support and promote projects that foster:

  • development and well-being in northern communities;
  • environmental protection and biodiversity conservation;
  • the development of the northern territory and the vitality of communities there;
  • the capacity to act of northern communities.

 

Submission of applications

The SPN invites eligible organizations to submit a project in the context of the first call for projects of the 2020-2021 fiscal year, before  deadline of February 3, 2021.

Section B: Entrepreneurial Initiatives

Section B seeks to support and promote projects that:

  • encourage the implementation by stakeholders in the territory of structuring entrepreneurship projects;
  • support economic diversification projects;
  • enhance business performance;
  • foster job creation.

 

Submission of applications

Applications for financial support can be submitted at any time. However, decisions on financing will be made on set dates.
