Industry Associations - Industry associations are expected to:
- promote the initiative;
- find appropriate mentors;
- receive and approve applications from interested young producers;
- provide payments for eligible expenses; and
- provide invoicing and reporting to the Ministry.
An industry association will receive up to $4,000 per mentorship based on paid receipts. The industry association may apply for up to five mentorship opportunities per year and may receive funding for administration costs at a rate of 10 per cent of the mentorships' costs. Funding is available until March 31, 2018.
Eligible expenses include registration fees and travel expenses to attend industry events (hotel, accommodation, air fare or mileage).
