The information provided by the applicant in the Identification module of their application form is automatically included here. The fields are not editable; they are read-only.
Partner Organization Information
Enter complete information for the organization and the contact person. Restrict the use of acronyms in the organization field. If possible, translate foreign organization names into English or French. SSHRC’s database does not accept special characters.
The address you provide must be complete and accurate, as SSHRC will use it to correspond with you. For countries other than Canada and the United States, select the "Other" address format and enter the city/municipality, province and postal code in the address lines.
Include an email address at which you can be reached.
If applicable, include your website address. This will enable us to validate/verify your information.
Letter of Support—maximum two pages (mandatory)
Prior to filling out this section, see SSHRC’s updated definitions of partner organization and formal partnership and the exclusions in the Guidelines for Cash and In-Kind Contributions.
Each partner organization must attach an electronic copy of a Letter of Support. It must be written on official letterhead, signed by appropriate officials, and at a minimum, include the following information:
- a statement that you are willing to participate in the development of a Stage 2 application;
- the reason(s) for your involvement in the partnership; and
- the anticipated cash and/or in-kind contributions if known at this stage.
Note that the letter of support may only be submitted via the online invitation process (see instructions below). Paper copies will not be accepted.
Save the document as a PDF file (.pdf extension), locate it on your computer by clicking on the
"Browse" button and attach it to the application by clicking on the
"Attach" button on the screen. An error message will appear if the file you are trying to attach does not meet the required specifications for page length and page size. Once you've successfully attached the electronic file, we recommend that you click on the "View attached file" button to ensure that you have the proper file.
Before you can submit the Partner Organization Form, you must successfully verify your form. When you select the "Submit" module and click the link "Click here to verify your form", the system will generate a Verification Report that lists any fields that must be completed or corrected. Once you have successfully verified your form, you must click on the link "Submit" and the completed Partner Organization Form will be attached to the application form. By submitting, you are acknowledging that you have read and agree in principle with the objective(s) of the proposal.
Note: The applicant cannot submit his/her application until you have submitted the Partner Organization Form.
