Process and Timelines

From time to time, Ontario Sheep Farmers will announce a call for proposals for research projects. You can see current and past Ontario Sheep Farmers-funded research projects on our website.

Once the call for proposals takes place, a letter of intent is required, which is reviewed by the Ontario Sheep Farmers’ research committee. The research project is evaluated and ranked based on the following criteria:

  • Alignment with current Ontario Sheep Farmers’ research priorities
  • Ability for research project to leverage funds; and
  • Ability and commitment to communicate research results and conclusions.

Projects that the committee is interested in funding will be contacted for a full research project proposal.

Full project proposals are then circulated for peer review. The committee will use this review to determine which projects to fund. Contact the Ontario Sheep Farmers office for more information.
