What happens after I apply?

Review Process

The CPRA will assemble an Adjudication Team to review and score the applications.

Only one application per organization is allowed.

Evaluation Criteria

The priority areas for adjudication are:

  • Demonstration of the “green” impact of the job
  • Demonstration that the applicant will create a meaningful job experience for youth
  • Demonstration that efforts will be taken to reach youth in the local community, particularly those at risk, disabled youth, visible and language minorities, new Canadians and Indigenous youth
  • Demonstration that the applicant has the necessary funding to support this 50/50 financial partnership

Additionally, applicants must:

  • Confirm that they have not already received any federal funding to support the same positions
  • Demonstration that they will comply with reporting and follow-up evaluation requirements

Funding Decision

  • All applicants will be notified by CPRA of their funding decision. Successful applicants will be notified by March 15, 2024.
  • Eligible work terms may begin as early as April 1, 2024.

Conditions of Funding

Successful candidates must:

  • Confirm their use of funding within five (5) working days of the date of offer or the offer will be withdrawn
  • Confirm that they have not already received any federal funding to support the same positions


Per Government of Canada requirements, successful applicants will be required to complete a final program report. This will include a report from the employer and from each youth employee supported by the Green Jobs Initiative. Details regarding this report will be communicated to the recipients when the funds are released. Failure to submit the final program report will render the organization ineligible for future funding through the CPRA.

Communication Requirements

Successful applicants must acknowledge the CPRA and the Government of Canada financial support in any communications.
