Funding is available for new projects that engage Canadians and clearly demonstrate measurable, positive results related to the key Environmental Priority: Fresh Water.

Your project must link to one of the related Priority Results:
  • 1. Canadians contribute to the improvement of water quality through the diversion and reduction of harmful substances in Freshwater; OR
  • 2. Canadians contribute to the improvement of Freshwater management and increase climate resilience through action involving the development and/or restoration of natural infrastructure.

Preference will be given to proposals that engage Indigenous Peoples, youth or small businesses. All proposals must fully meet program requirements.
