Canadian Space Agency (CSA): Canadian CubeSat Project

The objective of the Canadian CubeSat Project (CCP) is to challenge professors and students to design, build, launch and operate their own satellite, carrying out missions for scientific research, earth observation, meteorological measurements and imaging. 

The CSA will award up to 13 grants (one for each province and territory) to fund selected proposals to build a miniature satellite called a CubeSat.
