Call for Proposals

Thank you for your interest in the Support for Mid-Career Workers call.
The application deadline was on May 2nd at 4pm EDT and is now closed.

Due to the substantial number of submissions, representatives of organizations who completed their applications (in full on the application portal) will be notified of the outcome in June 2019.

Canada’s current skills development infrastructure offers few training opportunities for mid-career workers, yet this group will increasingly be impacted by labour market disruptions that will displace existing jobs, create new jobs that demand different skills, and change the trajectory of many Canadians’ working lives. In many sectors and regions, labour market disruption is already occurring, leaving many Canadians in precarious economic positions without the support they need to build new skills, increase their capacity, and navigate an increasingly complex world of work.

On April 2, 2019, the FSC-CCF launched an open call for proposals for innovative projects that help fill gaps in training opportunities for mid-career workers. The Centre will work with successful project proponents to support efforts to generate forward looking, responsive, and evidence-informed solutions to better meet the needs of mid-career workers facing challenges in the labour market.

The awarded projects will be announced in the upcoming weeks. If you have questions about the call for proposals, guidelines, or application instructions, please email
