CIC funding varies according to the nature of the activities. Proposed expenditures must be necessary and reasonable. CIC will not fund any expenses that can be covered by another source. If your proposal is approved, you must keep records of all expenditures and activities and be prepared to justify these before payment can be made.
Staff salaries and wages
CIC may contribute towards the salaries and wages of staff who are involved with ISAP-funded activities, up to the current salary or wage rate for similar work in the local labour market.
CIC may contribute towards your share of mandatory employment-related costs for staff, as required by federal or provincial/territorial laws. These costs are:
Canada Pension Plan;
Workers' Compensation premiums, where applicable;
employer's health tax, where applicable;
education levy, where applicable.
These costs are based on a percentage of wages and vary from province to province. Ask a Settlement Officer which rates apply in your region.
CIC may also contribute towards non-mandatory employment-related costs for staff such as life insurance, retirement plans and long-term disability insurance.
CIC may contribute towards your overhead costs, including:
leasing or purchase of equipment under $500;
fees for technical advice, research, accounting and audit services;
travel, meals and accommodation to attend conferences, workshops and seminars in Canada.
Costs for travel, meals and accommodation must not exceed government rates. Wherever possible, you are expected to book in advance and use public transportation, to keep costs down.
CIC may contribute towards the lease or purchase of capital assets worth $500 or more. These should be considered as special costs and each must be approved by CIC. Funds are provided if the capital assets are deemed necessary to the success of the activities. Disposal of assets when the program winds down will be at CIC's discretion.
Goods and Services Tax (GST)
CIC may fund part of the GST you pay on purchases. If you are eligible for a GST rebate (or Input Tax Credit), CIC will reimburse you 100 percent of the GST you have paid, minus the rebate you are entitled to. For example, if you are incorporated as a not-for-profit organization, you may be entitled to a 50 percent rebate from Canada Customs and Revenue Agency, with CIC reimbursing the other 50 percent.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
