National Funding Agreement Models

According to the Treasury Board Secretariat Directive on Transfer Payments, a funding agreement is a written agreement or documentation constituting an agreement between the Government of Canada and an applicant or a recipient setting out the obligations or understandings of both with respect to one or more transfer payments. It describes the requirements needed to maintain the accountability relationship between Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and the funding recipient. ISC has published the 2024-2025 national funding agreement models below.

A new fiscal relationship

The Government of Canada is committed to working with First Nations to establish a new fiscal relationship that moves towards sufficient, predictable and sustained funding for First Nation communities.

The funding agreement models have been streamlined to facilitate the use of a single agreement for all programs and funding from both ISC and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC).

Note that Comprehensive Funding Agreement model is used for all 10-Year Grant agreements.
