What’s New?

  • The system will now check browser compatibility and display a warning message in Grants Ontario if it’s incompatible.
  • The registration process has been reconfigured to a “stepped” process to make it more intuitive and capture more information. New fields in the registration form will allow registrants to tell us more about their organization and what types of clients they serve, and registrants can now attach supporting documentation confirming their identity during the course of the registration rather than performing a separate task later.
