major warning

A status given to an organization following multiple reductions in core funding.

Further to an assessment, a peer committee may recommend a decrease in core funding for an organization showing serious shortcomings in terms of the criteria for the program component, or a significant ongoing decline in its level of activities. The grant decrease is from 5% to 15% of the previous level of core funding and is for a 2-year period.

If an organization has its core grant reduced twice in a row due to negative assessments, a third negative assessment will automatically result in a major warning. More information is available on our website.
