Western's Office of Research Development & Services has created an Awards and Distinctions Database indicating agencies, foundations and institutions to which researchers can apply directly, or through which they can be nominated, for monetary and non-monetary awards and distinctions. Sheet one of the Excel file gives directions for how this list of almost 1500 awards and/or distinctions can be queried. Use your Western user id and password to access this.
MERX is a source for Canadian and provincial government tenders and contracts. The Research Office has a membership in MERX and can obtain full descriptions of the opportunities from the service as required.
Western researchers can also search Pivot, a comprehensive database of grant funding opportunities
