Service standards establish expectations in terms of the delivery standard for grant and contribution initiatives submitted to the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). Service standards are established for the following transactions:
- Acknowledgment of receipt of applications

Compliance with these service standards is a shared responsibility between the applicants and the CSA. Applicants must provide the required documents, duly completed, according to the program or announcement of opportunity guidelines within the prescribed deadlines.
