The upload / add note feature in the portal only allows one file to be uploaded at a time. If you need to add multiple files you will have to select the file you want to upload, complete that single document upload, and repeat for each additional document.
This does not mean you can merge your application and budget into one document for upload. We need to receive these as two separate documents for processing.
Yes, you can modify your organization type after registration. Go to the Register page and select the drop-down arrow next to the organization name.
The system takes time to process the data you provided us during your eligibility check. Therefore, please check back in 1 – 2 hours for a response.
If, after the allotted time, there are no records in the “program you are eligible for” table then this means that you are not eligible for any programs that have an application window open at this time. Should you wish to speak to a member of the IAF team, please contact funding(at)iafbc.ca
Each organization can only have one primary contact who is able to access, edit and submit their project application. We are, however, able to link additional contacts to your organization if someone other than the primary contact needs to submit an application for another program. If you wish to do this, please send us the details of the contact that you would like us to associate. In this e-mail, please include the company name, and all contact information for the new addition.
Further, if there are specific days / times we should contact the “other” contact please let us know as we can add this as a note to your file.
Please send all e-mails of this nature to funding(at)iafbc.ca.
If you have questions about your draft application or would like an IAF staff member to review it before you submit, you can book a consultation call through our website: https://iafbc.ca/.
On our website, you will need to select the program page for which you have a question and scroll down to the “Have a Question?” box. This will direct you to book a consult call, and any further program specific instructions.
Please ensure to check all mailboxes, including junk and spam. If there is no e-mail from the portal in any inbox, please contact us at funding(at)iafbc.ca
Yes, you can have more than one organization under a single user. Adding a new organization to your existing account is the same process as adding the initial organization. There is no need to create an entirely new portal account for each organization.
After an application has been submitted, it cannot be edited. The only time your application can be edited is while it is still in draft form.
To submit your completed application, go to the “applications” tab on your portal account. This will display all your applications. On the far-right side of the applications chart, there is a small downwards facing arrow. By clicking the arrow, you will get several options; to submit your application, select “submit” from the list.
To ensure your application has been submitted, please check to see that the status of the application has changed from “draft” to “submitted”.
If you do not have Microsoft Office, you may be experiencing some challenges opening or using the application or budget forms. If this is the case please contact funding(at)iafbc.ca and we will be able to assist you.
