grants & subsidies
Federal funding is available through Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) for a range of projects including development of community waste management systems, training and education, and ongoing waste management operations.
ISC also offers a range of grant programs, such as the annual Zero Waste grant and Earth Day grant, both of which can be up to $10,000. First Nations communities and schools can apply for both of these grants each year.
IZWTAG has budgeted for an annual number of conference and training spots, and will provide a subsidy to cover the cost of attending for those who are eligible. To find out more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the collection and transport of specific items and equipment, Product Stewards may provide subsidies for communities looking for assistance.
How to apply for federal funding
Funding requests follow a prescribed format depending on the type of funding your First Nation is seeking (e.g., grants, program implementation or operations).
To apply for grant funding, communities or schools must respond to the annual proposal calls which are emailed or faxed to each office. Get in touch to be added to the list.
and recycling systems
ISC supports the operation of community waste and recycling systems through several funding methods. First Nations should contact their funding services officer or capital management officer for more information. For general inquiries, get in touch with us.
