"We understand many organizations spent time and effort preparing an application for the May 15 CIP Project-Based intake. In order to reallocate funding to CIP Operating during COVID-19. our regular intake schedule for CIP Project Based is paused for now. Your work on the May 15 CIP Project-Based application can be directed to a future intake once we have a better understanding of when the COVID-19 recovery phase will begin," said Minister Aheer on her Twitter account May 15, 2020.
