Congratulations! You’re officially #FACTORfunded. This resource section offers a comprehensive collection of resources to assist you as you enter the final stages of a FACTOR application. Whether you’re a first-time recipient, or a seasoned veteran, there’s a lot available to you to guide you through submitting your completion paperwork and ensuring you meet all of your funding obligations.
If you haven’t already familiarized yourself with our Business Policies, we strongly encourage you to do so, as this handbook sets out FACTOR’s definition of words, phrases and terms that you should know.
Important Documents for Recipients
Congratulations on your FACTOR-funded project! There are a number of important documents you should consult through the stages of completion. Your project coordinator may require one or more of these forms from you while you complete your project.
Logo & Acknowledgment
Depending on the Program under which you have received funding, there are different acknowledgment obligations as outlined in your General Agreement. All FACTOR-funded recipients must include appropriate logos and acknowledgments where applicable as a condition of funding. We’ve put together two comprehensive documents to help guide you, based on the program under which you were funded.
If at any point in your project you’re unsure about where and how to put an acknowledgment credit, please speak to your project coordinator first. We recommend that you also consult the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Guide to Public Acknowledgement.
A Cost Report is a tool to organize and list all eligible expenses before submitting a completion budget. The completed Cost Report is uploaded to the completion budget page, located within the Budget tab of your completion.
If you don’t have Microsoft Excel, you can fill out the cost report using free online software like Google Drive or Open Office. When you open the cost report, review the Instructions sheet for detailed directions.
Cost Reports are also available for download in the Budget section of the Completion.
