Q: Is it possible for industrialised third countries (e.g. Canada) to receive funding through a subcontract requested by a European partner within a Collaborative project?
A: In principle, yes - neither the FP7 Rules for participation nor the FP7 draft Grant Agreement includes provisions concerning "nationality" of the subcontractor. Please note, however, that the FP7 draft Grant Agreement (Article II.7) stipulates certain requirements concerning subcontracts - e.g. if beneficiary intends to have some project tasks subcontracted, they have to be described and justified in the technical annex, what implies the consent from the Commission. Also, the principles of transparency should be respected in the attribution of a subcontract.
