Grants & Funding

Services for Communities

Funding is available for community projects that support at least one of WD's project activities: innovation, business development and entrepreneurship and community economic development. Our investments are helping rural and urban communities compete in the knowledge-based economy, develop a more diversified economic base and creating new skilled employment for western Canadians. Areas of focus include:

  • Community innovation,
  • Value-added production in traditional resource sectors,
  • Strengthening the capacity of western communities to undertake effective community economic development, and
  • Improving community and transportation infrastructure
