Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Canada nonprofit organizations, IHEs, and indigenous groups for projects to help to reduce national greenhouse gas emissions. Funding is intended for a wide range of activities to help communities address climate change, including virtual platforms, workshops, networking, training, climate awareness activities, including those related to Indigenous Knowledge.

The Climate Action and Awareness Fund is designed to support projects that can create middle class jobs for Canadians who work in science and technology, academia and at the grassroots community level. These projects are critical as Canada continues to build a sustainable net zero emissions economy by 2050.

The Climate Action and Awareness Fund has three main priorities:

  • Support youth climate awareness (request for proposals - closed summer 2020) and community-based climate action (request for proposals - fall 2020)
  • Support climate research at Canadian think tanks and in academia (request for proposals - winter 2021)
  • Advance climate science and technology (request for proposals - winter 2021)

Eligible activities:

The types of support, outreach, and resources provided through community-based climate action projects may include workshops, networking, training, virtual platforms, climate awareness activities – including those related to Indigenous Knowledge – and more. These activities should enable communities to take action on climate change.

In addition, the lead applicant's project activities must focus on a specific community. Strong proposals will demonstrate knowledge of the community, why the project is needed, and how it will support the objective. Potential communities include, but are not limited to:

  • Indigenous communities
  • Communities facing obstacles to engaging in climate action
  • Communities experiencing low engagement on climate action
  • Communities with significant exposure to climate risk
