Canadian Poultry Research Council - 2024 Call for Letters of Intent


Canadian Poultry Research Council (CPRC)


Call for Letters of Intent (LOI)


The CPRC Board established a three-category approach designed to accommodate both ongoing research issues and respond to evolving areas of research. Specific priority areas and desired research outcomes have been identified within the categories. The 2024 call for LOIs encompasses the three categories and their priorities which are identified in the Call for Letters of Intent (LOI) guidelines document.

Funding Availability

Applicants should limit their requests from CPRC to a maximum total of $60,000. Industry dollars, whether from CPRC or other industry sources, must be matched with non-industry dollars at a ratio of at least 1:1. Higher leverage ratios are preferred.

Special Notes

Review process
LOIs will be reviewed on the following criteria:
  • Scientific concept and approach: The proposal must be scientifically sound, technically feasible, and promise either to generate new knowledge or to apply existing knowledge in an innovative manner.
  • Industry impact: The proposal must identify how the work will benefit the poultry industry, especially in terms of helping industry reach its research target outcomes, and should outline any additional potential social and/or economic benefits that will be realized in Canada.
  • Knowledge transfer and commercialization: The proposal should describe how outcomes of the work will be shared with the research community and how it might be utilized by industry, including suggestions on how the resulting technology might be commercialized.
  • Collaboration among scientists and institutions is encouraged and will be a consideration during the review process. 


If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
