The Government of Canada will continue to protect the health and safety of all Canadians, while working towards a safe, sustainable, and green economic recovery from the COVID 19 pandemic.

Today, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, announced approximately $368,000 in federal funding from the Climate Action Fund to support six initiatives by not-for-profit organizations and educational institutions that inspire Canadians to take climate action and promote awareness of climate change in their communities.

The funding supports a variety of climate action activities, which include developing educational material for students about carbon policies, engaging youth, First Nations and small and medium-sized businesses to address waste and climate change, and supporting the creation of a mobile app that raised awareness about food waste and recovery.

In 2019–2020, the Climate Action Fund provided up to $3 million to support projects delivered by students, youth, Indigenous peoples and organizations, not-for-profit organizations, small and medium-sized businesses, and research and educational institutions that raise awareness of climate change and encourage others to take meaningful climate action.
