Environment and Climate Change Canada's (ECCC) Atlantic Ecosystems Initiatives (AEI) is currently accepting applications for 2021-2022 funding. The deadline for submitting a project is 4:00 pm Atlantic Standard Time (AST), February 25th 2021.

Priorities for 2021-2022:

Geographic Focus

For 2021-2022, the priority ecosystems of focus are the Wolastoq / Saint John River Watershed and the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence Watershed. Projects must take place in one of these two areas.

Issue of Focus: Water Quality
Funding is available for new projects that help to conserve, protect, and restore water quality from headwaters to estuaries within one of the priority ecosystems in Atlantic Canada. Priority will be given to projects that improve the assessment, monitoring, modelling and mitigation of stressors and their cumulative effects on water quality. Projects are required to focus on these specific stressors: nutrients, bacteria, and/or plastics.

Eligible Applicants
Eligible applicants include all Atlantic Canada-based Indigenous governments and organizations, non-governmental organizations, coalitions and networks of organizations, research and academic institutions. Applicants will apply online using the (GCEMS), a single window electronic platform to all ECCC application based funding programs. If you have any questions about the AEI contact us by email at ec.iea-aei.ec@canada.ca.
