The CIFVF requires four copies of the documentation. Each set must be bound, or presented in a binder, with a table of contents that identifies the page or tab number for each section. There should be nine dividers for the nine sections. There are three ways to prepare the copies and you should choose one of the methods that are described below:

  • You may use dividers with tabs that you label with each of the nine section headings listed above.
  • Alternatively, you may use dividers with tabs that are pre-numbered and include an index page, which is the table of contents, indicating the section title of each pre-numbered tab.
  • Or you may use dividers that are colour-coded with tabs that are colour-coded. In this case, the index page, which is the table of contents, should indicate the section title of each colour-coded tab.

Please include all information relating to a specific item in the relevant section. For example, all information relating to personnel should go in section 7; the letter from the distributor should be included in section 3- proof of market demand and not at the end of the proposal.

The CIFVF will not accept applications that are not bound and tabbed with a table of contents and they will be returned to the applicant.
