Please note that even if a project meets all eligibility criteria, the submission of an application creates no obligation on the part of the Minister or of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada officials to provide funding for the proposed project. The Minister retains discretion to determine, based on other public policy and public interest considerations, whether an application that meets the criteria identified in this guide will ultimately receive funding. Public policy and public interest considerations may include but are not limited to situations where the employer is undergoing any compliance inspection or investigation undertaken by the Public Health Agency of Canada; Employment and Social Development Canada; Service Canada; Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada; or Canada Border Services Agency, related to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program, the International Mobility Program, or any criminal investigation as well as any labour codes and standards based compliance inspection or investigation related to current or former foreign or domestic workers employed by the Recipient.
