Eligibility

Capital Power accepts requests for support from non-profit societies and registered charitable organizations that are associated with the communities where we have operations.

How to apply

To be considered, all requests for support must be received through Capital Power’s online application system. We are unable to consider hard copy or email requests for support.

This form provides an opportunity to apply for funding for sponsorship of an event, project or long-term initiative. It takes approximately 15-30 minutes to complete the entire form if all of the required information has been gathered beforehand. A list of required information is available after logging into the form.  The form remains active in the system for 90 days which allows incomplete forms to be saved and completed within that timeframe.

  • Advertising in yearbooks, handbooks, journals, event programs or recruitment initiatives
  • Advocacy or lobbying organizations
  • Political projects or programs
