CIM Community Funding Application
The Sudbury Branch of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum welcomes all groups and post-secondary institutions in the Greater Sudbury area to submit proposals for community funding.
Founded in 1898, the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) is the leading technical society of professionals in the Canadian Minerals, Metals, Materials and Energy Industries. CIM has always maintained three objectives:
CIM has over 14,600 members, convened from industry, academia, and government. With 10 Technical Societies and over 35 Branches, our members help shape, lead, and connect Canada’s mining industry, both within our borders and across the globe.
Our Sudbury Branch holds regular meetings, conferences, and social activities for our members. Profits raised from these activities are used to support local initiatives that encourage mining related activities and education.
Yearly funding is divided into two separate groups; The Innovation Education Fund to help support primary/secondary teachers who are teaching earth sciences and trade related subjects; and the CIM Community Fund, which includes post- secondary activities and community group activities supporting mining knowledge and education.
The Community funding guidelines and application forms are attached. We encourage you to submit your application by November 30 to be included in the first round of recipient selection. However, donations will continue to be awarded throughout the course of the season until our allotted budget is exhausted. (CIM Sudbury Branch seasons run September to September.)
