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 we continue 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)

Intake Period

September 17, 2020, to October 21, 2020, at 11:59 pm EDT

Eligible recipients

To be eligible for funding under this request for proposals, lead applicants must be one of the following:

  • not-for-profit non-governmental organization

  • university or academic institution

  • Indigenous organization

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.
