Call for Proposals


Environment Canada is now accepting proposals for the EcoAction Community Funding Program. This program
provides financial support to community groups for projects that have measurable, positive impacts on the environment. There is one funding deadline per year under this program, and applications must be received by November 1st, 2009 for projects starting April 1st, 2010 (or later). Projects should address at least one of Environment Canada’s four priority areas: Clean Air, Climate Change, Clean Water, and Nature.
For this year’s funding round, priority may be given to projects that address biodiversity (which falls under the Nature priority), as 2010 has been declared the International Year of Biodiversity by the United Nations.
We encourage interested groups to contact us for further information on the EcoAction Community Funding Program and the application process.
We can be reached by phone at 1‑800‑667‑7779 or (604) 664‑9093 (in the Lower Mainland) or by e-mail at Application forms, as well as detailed information on eligible projects and the application process, can also be found on the EcoAction Community Funding Program web site at

Completed applications for projects in British Columbia and the Yukon can be emailed to: or sent by mail to: EcoAction Community Funding Program; Environment Canada; 201-401 Burrard Street; Vancouver, BC; V6C 3S5.

Too bad we couldn't fit a project on noise pollution in there. The Harley mid life crisis crowd keeps making the odd day more and more unpleasant.

A good movie in that regard is Noise with Tim Robbins
