Introduction

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) wants to understand your project results and requires that all recipients of grants from CIRA’s Community Investment Program submit a final report.

A final report helps both your organization and CIRA learn from your experience and understand how this grant helped build a better online Canada.

Please be brief but thorough. You may be asked to meet with us to discuss the project after the final report has been submitted. We may also contact you in the next year to have a further discussion on your project outcomes.

CIRA would like to share your accomplishments on our website, so that the general public is made aware of how your project has contributed to building a better online Canada. Some of the following answers may be used to update the CIRA website.

This report is due within 90 days after your project ends.
