Grants to Canada nonprofit organizations, Indigenous organizations, and IHEs for research projects that advance science and technology related to climate change. Funding is intended to reduce national greenhouse gas emissions. The purpose of this program is to support projects that will strengthen Canada’s science capacity to understand, identify, accelerate, and evaluate mitigation actions that will work towards achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in Canada.

Net-zero research projects could include activities related to literature reviews and knowledge synthesis, qualitative or quantitative analysis, model development, engagement with experts and stakeholders, or community-based research, aimed at building knowledge on net-zero at the national, provincial, territorial, regional, or local scales, including findings specific to Indigenous communities.

  • Theme 1: Defining the future systems required for net-zero

  • Theme 3: Distributional impacts on the pathways to net-zero on workers, and their families and communities
