The Low Carbon Economy Challenge is part of the Low Carbon Economy Fund, and will leverage Canadian ingenuity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and generate clean growth in support of Canada’s clean growth and climate action plan.
The Challenge is being delivered through two streams:
- Champions Stream: Valued at $450 million, the deadline for the funding stream closed in September 2018. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions in the coming months.
- Partnerships Stream: Valued at $50 million, the Partnerships Stream will target smaller applicants on the basis of their ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also considering a project’s potential contribution to clean growth, energy savings and job creation.
The Partnerships Stream opened for applications on December 20, 2018. For more information and to apply, please visit the Government of Canada website by clicking here.
