Step 2. Review the Application Supplement

Before applying online, please review the Application Supplement (PDF, 368 KB). It contains detailed information that you need to know before you decide to apply.

Step 3. Fill out the Online Application

The online application is now available.

Ensure the total amount of funding requested in the online application:

  • doesn't exceed the maximum project funding amount;
  • matches the total amount requested in the Application Supplement; otherwise the lower amount will be used.

Once the Online Application is submitted, you'll receive an email confirming your submission. Please reply to this email.

Step 4. Submit the Application Supplement

The Application Supplement requires detailed information about the project. Download and submit the completed Application Supplement by email to OHS-IE-Grants@gov.ab.ca.

Step 5. After you apply

After you apply, the following steps occur:

1. Initial screening

  • Once all components of the application have been submitted, an initial screening is done to ensure that the application is complete and meets the eligibility criteria.

2. Internal review

  • Applications that pass the initial screening are evaluated by Alberta Labour staff, who evaluate applications by considering:

    • the project's alignment with at least one strategic priority area, or another demonstrated OHS need
    • whether the project focuses on at least one of the desired outcomes
    • the reach and impact of the proposed project, including consideration of the target audience size and the methods proposed to reach that audience
    • whether the application clearly outlines an issue to be addressed, the plan to address it, and how success will be measured
    • whether the project timelines are clear and reasonable
    • whether the project budget is clear and reasonable
    • whether resources needed for the project have been identified and will be available, or a plan is in place to make them available
  • Reviewers may also consider the applicant's performance if they've previously been awarded a grant by Alberta Labour.

3. Funding decision

  • A decision is made by the department after the two reviews are completed.
  • Applicants will be notified of the results of their applications.
