Calls for Proposals

Funding to non-profit organizations, institutions and programs is determined through annual Calls for Proposals. FII evaluates the proposals against standardized criteria to ensure they meet program eligibility requirements. Evaluation panels made up of industry experts, FII staff, and other government staff review and rank all proposals. The evaluation process is monitored by the B.C. Government's Purchasing Services Branch to confirm that evaluations are fair, equitable, and objective.

The panels provide recommendations for funding to FII’s President & Chief Executive Officer for final review and decision. FII staff work with successful recipients to negotiate a Recipient Agreement that will govern their program for the year.

FII reserves the right to modify terms, cancel, or change its Calls for Proposals any time, at its sole discretion. Calls for Proposals should not be construed as an agreement to purchase goods or service, or to provide project funding; FII is not bound to enter into a Recipient Agreement with any applicant.

Each Call solicits proposals for funding through an Online Funding System.

The 2019-20 Market Initiatives and Wood First Calls for Proposal closed December 20, 2018. This section will be updated when the 2020-21 Calls for Proposals opens (anticipated Fall 2019).


Note: Requests for Proposals and Requests for Qualifications for vendor services are found on the Contract and Career Opportunities page under About FII.
